So, I originally saw the felt monogram (not unlike my master bedroom pillow) at Shannon’s blog, Shannon Berrey. I’ve had my eye on this for a while.
Then, I saw Cassie at Hi Sugarplum do something similar on a pelmet. Gorgeous!
So, I decided to try it on my lamps in my dining area. I invested a whole 90 cents for three sheets of felt, just in case I messed up (I just needed two).
I traced letters. Cut them out. And, here they are.
You can see all of the bad cutting edges on the circle. I never passed cutting in kindergarten. I have always been a bad cutter. I don’t enjoy it. Is that a good case for a new Silhouette machine?
Anyway, here is a closer pic.
See what I mean. The letters aren’t perfect, but not AS bad as the circle. Don’t worry, I didn’t glue it on. It’s just sitting on there.
Not every project is a success!
So, I nixed it. It was a little borderline busy for the room anyway. But, perhaps I can use this concept elsewhere one day… if someone else cuts…
Psst… my chair is mentioned at Young House Love today! She tried the tutorial. Check it out to find out more.
