I inherited these great vintage yellow stencils from my husband's grandmother. We helped her clean out her house and while everyone went for the china and furniture I went for the real treasures!! Sewing notions, broken watches, old letters, vintage sheets, hankies and linens with a story. That's more my style, I love things with a history. Anyway, back to the stencils. They are a great mustard color and sturdy card stock. You can find something similar here. Here's what you'll need to make your own sign:
- 3 inch tall card stock alphabet stencils
- 1 fat quarter of your favorite fabric
- Spray adhesive
- Sewing machine with colored thread
- Thick yarn (I used Wool Ease Thick and Quick)
- Glue gun
First, flip the stencils over to the "wrong side" and give them a good coating of spray adhesive. I recommend doing this outside, but since it was a rainy day I decided to make a tent out of an old bag to catch the excess spray. Take my word for it after lots of countertop scrubbing, you don't want to skip this step!
here. Happy Crafting!
