Making the World Cuter: Friendly Friday-Haybird's Blog

A blog where one woman is on a mission to make the world cuter, one kid, cupcake or crafty thing at a time.


Friendly Friday-Haybird's Blog

Happy Friday-does this month go by way too fast or is it just me? Just a week left until Christmas Eve! Wowzers!

I have a really fun little tutorial from Haley at Haybird's Blog. She is new to the blogging world, but has a lot of great sewing projects up already, and I'm sure there are many more to come!

This is a great way to use scraps! It is a fast easy craft that can be done with or without a machine!
Scraps of contrasting colors
Small amount of polyfill stuffing
Hair Clip
Glue Gun

Using your favorite font, type your child's initial. Size is up to you. My A is about 3 inches tall. I transferred mine to freezer paper because I don't have one of those fancy fade away ink pens. (Santa? Are you reading this?!) You'll need two. However, on the second one, make sure you trace your letter to the wrong side of the fabric.

Using a machine or by hand, sew the edges of your letter leaving an opening to stuff your stuffing ;).If you don't want the frayed look, there are some great "stop fraying" products. (*HINT* For the A, I tried to cut out the middle hole and sew but I couldn't get my stuffing in! I ended up starting over and not cutting out the middle. I sewed a small X in the middle after I stuffed the letter.)

Now that your letter is sewn shut, you can add some bling if you choose. I sewed a little bow towards the bottom. I used a scrap rectangular piece of black and white damask fabric and ran a long stitch down one of the long sides. I gathered it and shaped it into a flower. I then glued my letter in the middle.

To attach the flower and initial to a clip, I first glued some ribbon to cover the metal of the clip and glued the flower to the top! Kinda like this tutorial at The Green Wife.

Presto! If you try this out, I'd love to see how the other letters turn out!
