We have featured these type of canvas paintings in past blog posts but this is the first time creating one for the home sewing studio.

Until next time ….. create your style.

It’s been a while since we have featured a #DIY Outfit-of-the-day. Today we feature a blue cotton pair of pleated wide leg pants. We used Simplicity 1069 commercial pattern to complete this project. We created a size 12 and added a side snap closure. These are a favorite item. They are extremely comfortable. We choose two different looks for the wide leg pant of the day. Look #1 features a sparkle gold sweater with brown tank underneath. Look #2 features a  Rue 21 native american designed peach-red cotton crop tank front with multi-color sheer longer back.

Materials needed:

It’s very easy to create these portraits. You may purchase these items from your local craft store or big-box retailer in the Arts and Crafts Department.

Instructions:
Imagine a design of choice. Use the painters/masking tape to map the design on the canvas. Once tape is placed on the canvas, paint the nontaped parts of the canvas using acrylic paint. When the masterpiece dries (could take an hour or two) remove the tape… and Voila a perfect painting!

This is a simple idea for any empty wall or side table decoration.

Hope you enjoy.

Until next time ….. create your style.

We developed lots of no-sew bows a few weeks ago. The teenage participants choose a variety of colors and fabrics to complete this project. The mini session had females and males participating.  We located a tutorial on Pinterest.com in order to create these items.
