PROJECT: Home decor... curtains, wall art, bedding, place mats, etc
THE KICKER: Use letters/numbers/symbols in your design
WHEN CAN YOU ENTER: Now through March 31st, 2012
I've been toying with ideas for my entry. As usual, I'll probably change my mind a hundred times before I settle on the final project. But, hey, that's half the fun!
My first thought was to make a magnetic board and some fabric letters like these or these. This is a fun way to get children interested in letters and words, especially their names.
Then I saw this beautiful embroidery, by Amy from A Home, Made. I learnt to embroider when I was at school, but haven't done any since then. I could relearn some embroidery stitches and make a wall hanging. Hmmmm... what words would I like hung on my wall? love, fun, laughter.....
Or perhaps I might use some wire to make the words Threading My Way and wrap them in fabric, like Nova from A Cuppa and a Catchup. The fabric wrapped wire that Nova made is so cool.
Kristin, from Pritty Tings, wrote a fabulous tutorial on screen printing Cookie Monster onto a t-shirt. Many years ago I did some silk screen printing and really enjoyed it. Perhaps I could use this technique to print words onto a wall hanging.
Or, what about an appliquéd cushion. Check out these awesome cushions made by Erin, from Missy Mac Creations. I could appliqué a child's name onto a cushion.
Or perhaps I could create a collage of fabric letters on a canvas, or perhaps...
The challenge runs until the end of March, so there's plenty of time for me to make up my mind. Would you like to join me in the challenge? Head on over to the challenge home page to find out more details. Or have a look at the Typography Inspiration board over on Pinterest.
