I’m sure you’d agree with me that Pinterest is a fantastic source for ideas and inspirations. I could spend hours just looking at tons of pictures there, well that’s before I have my little M … now I’d be lucky to be able to visit it once a day :). There was a pin in home decor section using embroidery hoop for wall decor, the inspiration for my project to make DIY wall decor for my baby’s room, so here it is hopefully it inspires you too!
1. Attach the fabric background onto the hoop. I used plain creamy fabric to get vintage look.
2. Print & cut the letters, trace & cut the felt.
3. Stitch the felt letters to the fabric.
4. Satin Peonies.
You can find many videos in youtube about how to make fabric flower with this technique. To get a nice layer I used more than 1 color, cut them in 3 diameter sizes, cut the edge into 5 parts, slightly burn it, then stack them together and secure by stitches. I made these flowers last year, actually I was thinking to make them as headband, so I don’t have photos showing details step by step, sorry :(.
5. Cute butterfly
To add contrast to the pink color theme I used aqua blue scrap fabric from last batik project, wire for the wing frame, and crocheted gray yarn for the body.
6. Put all together.
