Do you have no idea what’s kinds of gift send to your kid? Don’t worry. Here one interesting handmade project you can try.
What you need:
-Letters to trace
-Scrap Fabrics for front
-Fabric for back (I used vintage chenille)
-Quilt batting (I used felt on the lower case letters to make it more stiff and interfacing on the numbers.)
-Sewing machine, scissors, etc.
1. Print out letters to trace. I used Microsoft Publisher to create the letters and made them all the same size and used the same font. You could do this in Word as well, or Photoshop. You could also just free style it, etc. Cut the letters out.
2. Trace the letters onto the fabric that you will use for the top.
3. Cut the letters out in square shapes.
4. Cut out squares of quilt batting and backing that will be the same size of the letter.
5. Make a sandwich of the fabrics and quilt batting. Place the back fabric right side down. Then place the piece of interfacing on top of that. Next, place the top fabric right side up. Pin together. Sew on the tracing.
6. If you desire, you can quilt it or just leave it.
7. Trim the edges of the three layers. Leave at least 1/4 inch around the edges of the letters.
8. Clip the raw edges. Make clips straight into every seam allowance. Stop before you reach the seam allowance.
