If you are like me, I am getting a bit of the Spring Fever.  Hi again, it is Amy from Sew Incredibly Crazy  to show you how to add a little fabric flare to a premade canvas. Spring Canvas 1Canvas art can be so expensive, so I thought I would make my own.  “Spring” pretty much says it all for me right now.  I am totally looking forward to all the flowers that are slowly peaking through the ground.

I bought a premade canvas at the local craft store.  They now have a variety of different ones that would work great for this, such as burlap or linen.  I choose to work with linen.

Here is what you will need.

A premade canvas –  make sure the top is

Fabric squares, I used 5 different Charm square prints

HeatnBond® Ultrahold  

A saying or word that you have printed out

An Iron

I also added embroidery and button to the bottom of the canvas, this is optional.

First, you need to reverse your word, I just hold the printed version up to a window and trace around the word.  You could use a light box as well.

After finished reversing your word, trace you letters on to your HeatnBond® Ultrahold  .  After tracing you letters, cut them apart and iron them on to your fabric.

I chose for each letter to be a different fabric.

After they have cooled, cut around each of the letters.

Remove the paper backing from the letters and arrange on your canvas.

Spring Canvas 19

Cover your letters with a pressing sheet before you iron them in place.  If the canvas is treated with anything, you do not want it to get on to your iron.

Iron in place.

I added embroidery to the bottom, by drawing it free-hand on the canvas with a pencil.  Draw lightly if you are planning on doing the same.  Add a few fun buttons and you have your own canvas art at a fraction of the cost.
