Tutorial Tuesday: Fabric initial
Hello! This week's tutorial is a very easy way of using up those fabrci scraps. Sadly, I dont have step by step pictures, which made me think about it twice before posting. But since its ridiculously easy I will give a description of how I made it. If im not clear in something, or everything, please ask so I can explain better and fix the tutorial. OK? Well here we go:
1- Use a wire hanger to make the letter. I found that using pliers made it more easy and detailed.
2- Wrap some batting strips all over the wire, using hot glue to secure it at the beguining and end of each strip.
3- Cover the letter with fabric strips according to the color scheme of your preference. Since the "S" I made stands for "Sofia", my baby, I kept it on the girly pastel color scheme. Use hot glue where necessary.
4- Add ribbon, buttons, flowers or anything you like on the letter.
5- Your done!
I really hope I was clear enough, if not just leave a comment with your questions and I will happily answer!
PS Since I am determined to post frequently, I went ahead and got myself an assistant to peck me whenever I forget to post, or think Im "too busy" to create something. Ladies and gents, I present to you: Pollolo the blog assistant!
Pollolo is now the Director of the Creative Department on the Kaleidoscope Blog, as you can see he is working on the blog layout look. And your eyes do not deceive you, he is GREEN, as we should all try to be :D
PSS I noticed I have 19 followers! I'm working on a BIG giveaway to celebrate, but I wont spill the beans just yet!
