A Little V Day Love

Chekah out.



Just machine-stitched some wool felt onto a 20" x 20" square of fabric, and topped it with some "It's a Hoot" fabric from the Moda line. Sewed it together, and put a zipper in the bottom. Easy and beautiful.

Update:

Holla to all the peeps from UCreate! Thanks for stopping by!

Update #2:

For those interested, the font I used was Times New Roman in size 650. That was for the inner letter. I traced it from the paper onto freeze paper, ironed it on, then cut the fabric around that. Then, I used that same piece of freezer paper and ironed it onto the wool, then cut out about 1/2 inch from the stencil, so I knew it would be bigger than the inner letter.
