Project Details

  • Level:intermediate
  • Time:1 hour

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Pinpoint the center of the pattern on your cloth before you start to ensure you will have enough cloth around the edges to complete the pattern. Find the center of your cloth by folding it in half lengthwise and widthwise. Mark the center on the back of the cloth with an erasable marker and then count out towards the sides and top/bottom, cross referencing with your pattern. (Tip: you may find using an embroidery hoop to keep the fabric helpful.)
  • 2
    Once you have completed your pattern, cut it out using the weave of the cloth to give you straight lines.
  • 3
    Adhere pattern to the front of a piece of cardstock, making sure to add some extra adhesive at the edges to prevent fraying.
  • 4
    Consider adding some embellishments to the card, such as one or more of the following:
    Cut a strip of colored cardstock and punch it with Interchangeable Border Punch of your choice.
    Cut a pinwheel using Fuse Creativity System mini die and attach it to the front of the card with a colored split pin.
    Use a banner stamp.
    Add a handwritten Mother's Day (or other holiday) sentiment.
