Today I spent the morning in our daughter's room, up to my elbows in paint, turning her room from......
...to a lovely shade of...
It's all part of the "re-decoration" of her bedroom that I told you all about HERE.
The room is slowly coming together and I hope to be able to show you the completed project in a few weeks. Until then I will have lots of little projects to show you, all part of the new colour scheme.
And here is the first!
Afton grew out of this pretty little tee-shirt 2 years ago.
I loved the strawberry embroidery and pretty gingham ribbon detailing so I couldn't bear to send it off to charity as I do with so many of her clothes.
Instead I held onto it in hopes that I could use it in some way. And today I did!!
Here are crafty bits for today's little project:
~ a wooden hoop
~ ric rac
~ gingham ribbon
(and I used a glue gun, too!)
First I cut the tee-shirt into a small square that would easily stretch into my wooden hoop.
I glued the fabric to the back of the hoop, pulling it snugly.....
....then cut off the excess using sharp scissors.
Unfortunately the tee-shirt had a small stain on it. To cover this I folded up a piece of matching gingham ribbon into a bow and glued it over the stain.
What an easy-peasey fix!!
To finish the edges, I glued some white ric-rac to the back of the hoop so that the ruffle-ly edge could be seen at the front.
(I burned myself several times doing this, but it was worth it in the end!)
Doesn't the hoop art perfectly match this strawberry angel I bought for our daughter last summer?? Cute as a button, huh?
One decor project done, several to go.
Bit by bit, Little Lady's room is coming together.
Keep checking in - I am sure I'll have something else to share within the next few days!!
Hugs to you and yours,
