This month’s challenge for Michael’s Makers was to create something using denim, one of the new craft trends for 2015. For my project I took a side profile photo of Boo and collected the following materials: a stretched linen canvas, a roll of denim, and red embroidery thread:
I carefully cut out Boo’s silhouette:
And traced it onto a piece of the denim:
Before cutting out the image I used a paint brush to apply glue around the image to keep it from fraying:
Once it was dry I carefully cut out the silhouette and applied glue to the back:
I spread the glue to the edges using a paint brush and then pasted it down onto the center of the pre-stretched linen canvas:
Next I used a needle and the embroidery thread to stitch Boo’s name and date:
A small detail but a nice personalized touch:
The finished silhouette:
Gift or home decor idea!
