I saw these HOPE picture frames on HERE!
I fell in love with them:) so I wanted to do them but
to fit my house:) I had no idea what burlap even was tell I
saw her post!! and it totally fits the vibe of my house SOOO
I think I may have to make the pillows like she does HERE!
I got these nasty picture frames at the dollar store..
they just needed a little paint, so I painted them black!!!
cut my burlap to match the inside of the
frames..in this case 8.5 by 11 in
Then I drew out the word HOPE
and cut it out on some black fabric:)
It doesn't show it in the picture but I pinned
the letters down...... makes life easier
AND I GOT .............
THIS as my final project!
also I didn't keep the glass in
the frames...don't know why I just liked that
look better I suppose:)
SO thanks Humble Homemaker
totally LOVE your blog and creativity

SO here is all the new fun shirts I made for my little dude.
I had no idea what freezer paper even was tell I
Its something so fun and easy to do even if you
are creatively challenged like myself...
first things first get some
totally got the roll of 150ft for 5bucks at
Then pick out something you want to put on your project.
All I have done are onesies, but I have seen pillows,
purses, pj pants....you can use your imagination...
I always draw these silly half fish looking shark things...
Jayson thinks they are so funny...
So I thought I would put one on
a onesie and try it out!!
You can use a printed out stencil...
I don't have a printer so I am forced
to free hand, SCARY!
Take your freezer paper shiny side down and
cut out your stencil with an x-acto knife:)
Once you have your stencil cut out... Place it where you
want and iron it SHINY side down!!
Shiny side will stick to your iron...
( creatively challenged me learned that the hard way)
Make sure it is on
good with no lifting on the edges.
Once you let it dry rip it off.
Yay you did it:)
No freezer paper....?
You can still have fun.
Take random things from around your house
in the shape of circles..
Here I have a soda cap, milk cap, hair spray lid and cup.
Dip them in fabric paint and press them on your onesie.
Last week I made one like this...same idea...
I used the end of a paper towel roll..
then made the
circles into peace signs
Take a pencil eraser and dip it into your paint
then just out line it.. :)
Put them on your cute baby
like my Ty here:)
Hope I didn't bore you and you got an idea or two:)
let me know what you think!!!

well i wanted the rag side to be the side with
all the pink, BUT i didnt realize i was sewing it on the
white side tell i was about three rows in
and unpicking flannel is so not fun...
so i just went with it and i think it turned out better
