*LOVEY DOVEY POST ALERT*
So… in February, me and The Boy celebrated 5 years of romantic dates, hysterical laughter, blazing rows (come on, no-one’s perfect), and millions of kisses. To celebrate, we went out for dinner and swapped pressies.
I got some amazing ceramic button coasters (which I wrote about here).
He got a handmade picture…
It was all made in TOP SECRET conditions, obviously…
If you want to make one similar, here’s what I did:
1. I drew out my design (on paper which would fit into my frame)
2. I traced my design onto water soluble film (can’t remember where I got mine from, but it’s this kinda stuff)
3. I then pinned the film on top of my material4. I used a plain black stitch to trace over my design, sewing through both the film and fabric
7. I ironed the material, and then put it in the frame. Ta da!
If you have a go at something similar, please send me a photo to: firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d love to see it 🙂
