Personalize your décor with fun fabric letters. Choose coordinating prints or completely mismatched prints to add whimsy.
Supplies listed are enough to make one 12”x14” letter.
Position the letter right side down over the batting square. Trace the letter shape onto the batting; cut out. Using spray adhesive, adhere the batting to the letter right side.
Position the letter with the batting side down over the fat quarter wrong side. Trace 2” beyond the letter shape (1). If the lines intersect, mark along the intersection; cut out the letter along the outer lines.
1. Trace Letter.
Wrap the fabric edges tightly around the letter edges, clipping the corners to ease the fabric raw edges around to the letter wrong side, if applicable. If using a staple gun, staple the fabric edges to the letter wrong side every 3”. Or glue the fabric edges in place; let dry. Note: Some letter corners and curves won’t be covered when wrapped tightly around the letter edge. Don’t fret; the rickrack will conceal any imperfections.
Position the rickrack along the letter inner perimeter. Fold one rickrack end 1⁄2” to the wrong side; glue. Glue the rickrack in place, concealing any exposed wood edges and/or corners. Position the rickrack folded end over the rickrack raw end.
