Okay crafty people........

by Ajay » Sun Apr 16, 2017 5:11 am

I have to go to my father in laws house tomorrow for Easter. :ratherbe:

But as a tradition, I always get a small token for his wife (not my mother in law) as she is hosting, and my mother taught me it's always polite to bring a small gift of appreciation for the host. That and it really pisses off my sister in law every time, and anytime i can do that is a win for me.

So his wife is a teacher so I stitched this up


Painted a frame with chalkboard paint.

Then used a little stuffing to make it pop

and then glued some fabric to the back that i had in my stash

This is the first time I've ever done anything but frame my work, and I am by no means a crafty individual, I follow directions and patterns very easily. Other then that.... :roll: Is there anything else that needs to be done before i hand it over as a Easter gift?

Don't know the first thing about framing, but that is really, really cute. Happy Easter!

Only thing I can think of, and in this case may be omitted, is glazing to stop dust. Could be done with acrylic sheet glued/clipped to the front face of the frame.

Otherwise, rather nice.

That looks just right for a teacher and I am sure that deep down she will appreciate the work which has gone into it.

This is so crafty and creative. I'm also one of those people that's great at copying ideas but have a hard time coming up with things on my own. I think it is fantastic the way it is.
