A few weeks ago a friend and I were carpooling to work. She mentioned that some other ladies from work were talking about getting together once a month for a craft night, and asked if would I be interested. My answer? Heck yes, I would!
The lovely lady who hosted the craft night blows me away with the beautiful things she makes. She quilts, makes fabric art, and sews up a storm. Really talented! (I seriously envy her skills and her craft room. Or, should I say, craft loft.)
So on Craft Night #1, she taught the rest of us to make canvas art. Basically, they are fabric covered canvasses with a fabric image ironed on the front. I couldn’t decide if I wanted to make one to hang above our coffee station, or one to hang in our bathroom, so I made both. (Well, three. I couldn’t help it!)
Here are my creations!
These were seriously, super easy to make. It did help that we had a very patient teacher guiding us through the steps…
Because of their simplicity and absolute cuteness, I have decided that they will make great homemade gifts, for sure! My mind is already turning: “whose birthday is coming up next?”… “what random holiday can I find an excuse to make one of these for?” … “maybe one for every room?” :)
Here’s to the next craft night!
