On this Patriot’s Day, many of us will pause to remember our loved ones.
Amanda here today with a timeless piece of decor to help you spark happy memories of your loved ones throughout the year.
I die cut a quote from iron-on transfer and adhered it to the polka dot specialty burlap from the Home+Made collection. It was a bit of a beast to get the burlap into the hoop, but I finally figured out a way to do it and will show you below.
I didn’t have gold ribbon to make a bow, so I adhered two pieces of gold glitter tape together and folded it into a bow. I stapled the layers together in the middle and adhered strips to make the knot and tails.
The polka dot burlap from the Home+Made collection is super stiff which is great for die cutting and other cutting applications, but I wanted this little baby to fold around an embroidery hoop. I tried several things to soften up the burlap, but the only thing that worked was getting it sopping wet. I laid the burlap on my kitchen table and poured water right on top, patting it to help the water go all the way through. I blotted it dry with a towel after it was nice and soaked.
Looking at the hoop like a clock, I started by folding and clipping the burlap to the inner hoop at 12 and 6 o’clock. I then added clips at 3 and 9 o’clock. I added the remaining clips, folding and pinching the burlap as I went along.
