Tutorial: Fabric Covered Letters

Here's a quick & easy (no sewing required) tutorial for a cute way to add some zest to any room.

You will need a computer, a printer, cardboard, fabric, scissors, a paint brush, decoupage & double-sided tape.

1. Find a font that you love. Download (if necessary) & open up a document. Type your letter, and re-size it so that it fits a full size of paper. I used a serif font.

2. Print out each letter and cut around the edges. Trace onto a piece of cardboard (use what you have on hand... cereal boxes work great).

3. Cut the letter out of the cardboard.

4. Place the letter face down on the fabric & trace.

5. Cut the fabric.

6. Apply decoupage to the cardboard and ease the fabric onto the cardboard so that edges match up nicely.

7. Apply a coat of decoupage to the top and let dry (about one hour should do it)

8. Use Command Strips, double-sided tape or putty to hang letters.

Done! Voila!
