Happy Sunday night everyone! Tonight we have a short little blog about a fun project my mother and I worked on last week, some cute decor frames which feature some fabric and iron-on patches. I recently bought some patches from Amazon that were meant to be either iron-on or sew-on and was looking for something to do with them. Here's a few of the patches I got to give you an idea of what they look like:
I also had some frames that my mother had given me recently as she had not yet thought of something to make with them. They were originally from the Dollar Tree and have wooden beads along the top for hanging. The frames already had some art/words in them, but that ended up being covered up.
Once I picked the iron-on patches I wanted to use, my mother and I had a brainstorming session about how to best make the patches look like they made sense in the frames. The answer was fabric! I went shopping in my mother's fabric stash and then we went to Walmart's fabric section as well to get some fun pieces to use. Here are the patches I picked, along with the fabric to go with them.
My mother really took the reins on the fabric piece which I appreciated! She cut a piece of cardstock that fit into the frame and then attached the fabric to the cardstock with some heat-activated fabric adhesive.
I also went ahead and painted the wooden beads on each frame to match the colors of the frame.
We then felt that the frames needed a little extra something so we picked some ribbon that matched each frame.
The ribbon was attached with some double-sided tape and then the patches were glued down with some hot glue just to ensure they were really stuck on there. Four frames have been done and here's what they are looking like:
I didn't quite know where these frames would go, but I am happy with how they turned out! Thank you again to my mother for the creative consultation :)
I got some additional patches and have a few other frames left so am excited to make a few more! I think I'll be putting these on the Etsy shop when I've made a few more so I will let you guys know if I do!
