She found a beautiful button monogram idea that was $100 to order-yikes!
I quickly informed her that no self respecting crafter would consider paying so much for something that could be created at home:) So we happily went shopping for supplies and embarked on our new project. S is for Savannah!
Apparently I was almost a Janna Anna Mahana...thankfully my mother intervened and convinced my dad that that was not a good idea and so I became Kimberly. I am always quick to tell men that they do not have an equal say in naming their children:) Anyway...Annabelle and Savannah are lovely southern names for my granddaughters of which I heartily approve:)
Here is our project:
|Begin with a canvas. We purchased two 11x14 in a pack for 5.99 at Hobby Lobby. |
We covered the canvas in white burlap, using hot glue. This is easier with 2 sets of hands.
|I cut a S from the Songbird cricut cartridge. I cut 3 before we had the perfect size.|
It is a good idea to cut an image out on cheap paper first!
We tried 2 different positions for the S on the canvas.
|We bought this multi colored trim in the fabric section at Hobby Lobby .|
These Prima flowers were perfect!
|Trace your letter onto the canvas, preferable with pencil.|
|Lay the buttons all out BEFORE you glue them down!|
Some of these buttons have been around in my button box for 30 years!
|After the button S was complete, we added the trim and flowers.|
Lay out your design BEFORE you glue!
|This can be hung on the wall or put on a small easel.|
