When it comes to gifts, I go the DIY route almost every time. There’s something very personal and meaningful about getting a handmade gift that you just can’t have with something like a dvd or a tie. I’ve always got room for more crafting supplies around here, and I’ve been in need of some anyway, so when Walmart gave me the opportunity to try out a variety of their Fashion Art Project supplies I jumped at the chance.
I’ve been wanting to give my Grandmother something nice for a while now, she’s such a wonderful lady, and a store bought gift seemed too impersonal. I decided to use my new supplies to make a backpack to keep her ukulele music in. My kit came with everything I needed and more. When I was done my husband stenciled a shirt for Judah and we still had enough left for three or four more projects!
Here’s what I got:
-Two packs of iron on letters
-One sheet of iron on rhinestone designs
-One set of stencils (3 sheets, misc. designs)
-One canvas backpack
-One set of fabric patches
-Three pack fabric stencil spray
Now on to my first project. (Please note that while these are great to do with your kids, use caution when working with the iron!) I started by cutting out everything I wanted to use and arranging it how I wanted on the backpack. I also took a picture of the layout so I could use it for reference.
|Don’t mind the pink spots, I had an accident with the spray paint. (That’s what I get for not following directions!)|
Here’s project #2. This one was extremely easy, and it’s perfect for kids. I won’t bore you with my step-by-step here, the pictures are pretty self explanatory.
Ta-da! Easy as pie. You can purchase the products from this post and more in the craft section at Walmart. You can also check out Fashionartprojects.com for ideas, tutorials and a complete list of products.
