Patchwork wall canvas – The finishing

Patchwork wall canvas The finishing

We have reached the final episode at last icon smile Patchwork wall canvas – The finishing I’m planning to welcome the 14244-th day of my life confessing how I made the last few steps to tranform the 12 scenes into a happy and interesting patchwork picture. Hopefully, the late hour will not be a holdback to my being sufficiently clear and useful for those brave among you who will try to make such a canvas for themselves or their beloved child.

For your reference, the 14244-th day of my life happens to be my birthday icon wink Patchwork wall canvas – The finishing Happy Birthday to meeeeeeeeee, Happy Birthday to meeeeeee!!! Happy birthday, dear TiKiiii! Happy birthday to meeeeeee!!! icon cool Patchwork wall canvas – The finishing

My life counts quite many days (compared to those of my cute baby Ioana who hardly has 100 days), but that’s the price to become more and more intelligent, beautiful and mature icon wink Patchwork wall canvas – The finishing Haha!

As for the canvas… There it is!!! I really struggled to make a decent picture for you. My humble camera copes well with food, but something measuring 120 per 80 cm with so many details, was beyond its capabilities. In addition, I was in the middle of a fairly heavy pregnancy and dragging the canvas all over the house in search of a good light, wore me out in no time.

And that the place where the patchwork canvas decorates – the room of my cute chick! Hopefully she will like it when she grows up.

Now, let’s discuss how to make it to this artwork. When I finished the scenes, I judged by eye how much fabric I needed to have enough space left between them so that I can make the patchwork finishing with fabric cuttings, buttons, laces and ribbons. In my case, it was a rectangle of 120 by 80 centimeters.

Once you choose your canvas size, cut the tip fabric and zigzag the entire circumference on your sewing machine. Then place over all the scenes (well ironed). Move and rearrange until you see what you like. They may be organized symmetrically or chaotically. Fix with pins and sew them on the sewing machine, straight point stitch.

The next step is to get out all your pieces of fabric, laces, buttons, patchwork items, ribbons and others you have. I even cut up some old clothes and a handbag to procure more material for my work icon smile Patchwork wall canvas – The finishing

Cut pieces of fabric with variable length and width, iron them making or not a hem. Scatter them over the artwork fabric, between the scenes. Do the same with the laces, buttons, etc. Move and rearrange until you see something you like.

Fix with pins and sew with a straight stitch. Inevitably, you have empty spaces here and there. You can fill them with buttons or felt figurines like letters of the alphabet, fruits, butterflies, clothes. You can sew them directly on the artwork fabric or on the bigger fabric cuttings.

You can embroider some figures by hand to make your artwork cuter.

For the finishing of the artwork itself, I used 4 meters of 3 cm wide ribbon and as much lace, 2 cm wide.

I used the same lace and 8 wooden buttons to make the hanging of the artwork. The lace rings are about 10 cm long (each) and I sewed them under the passepartout lace for a better visual finish. Place at equal distances from each other. Finally, I swiped a bamboo stake for tomatoes to my beloved Phiphi and hung the artwork on the wall. I stepped three paces back and admired the result icon smile Patchwork wall canvas – The finishing
