* COMPETITION NOW CLOSED *
I'm rather loving the craft competitions which are out at the moment, especially ones that are relating to Home Decor, and after a bit of hesitation (because it's fabric) I decided to give Hillarys Crafts Competition a go.
The requirement was to choose one of the 4 fabrics available from the Roman blinds and curtains collection and make something from it!
I chose Safi Turquoise and as I thought it was a nice tranquil colour and pattern I decided to make some letters from my craft room - my little bit of sanctuary in the house.
After a trip to Hobbycraft for my letters, cord and wadding I set about making my padded letters.
|Materials sourced from Hillarys, Hobbycraft, and my drawers....|
|Padding out the letters|
|Marking out the material|
|Rough edges as these are going to be covered|
Once each of the letters was covered I used my red material which I'd measured out earlier to go round the edges (good for hiding the seams). I used my old faithful Mod Podge for this.
|Adding the edging to cover the seams|
|Mod Podge used to add edging to letters|
|Adding the cord|
|Pinning in place until the glue dries|
So what do you think? This is my entry into Hillarys Craft Competition which is being run until 19th June, if you want to have a go yourself you still have time to pick your fabric but be quick, the closing date is 12th June for that part of the challenge.
Do let me know if you enter too, would love to see my readers designs.
