Quick and Easy Fabric wall art

 Good Morning my Beauties!
Ever have one of those project epiphanies...you know..you are working on cleaning out your craft room and you  find some stuff and then all of the sudden it becomes...
"screw cleaning the craft/crap room...I have REAL work to do."  :)

Last week I was sorting some stuff and I found this big embroidery hoop...I have had it for months
 waiting....and waiting...and waiting.....
Know what else I had?  Vintage fabric...its been sitting for 2 years....YUP...
I had a ....."You got your chocolate in my peanut butter moment".
I thought...Heck I will use the two and make a simple little fabric art.

Well I liked that it looked vintage, but it was missing something...and all of the
sudden..bam!! Hey...I have that cool stencil...
I grabbed some acrylic paint and painted it on...

Voila! A cute vintage little fabric wall art...
all because I was suppose to be cleaning...
Really...its not my fault...my brain will find any means
necessary NOT to clean...:)

I hope you enjoyed it and hoping you can find yourself a quick fun little project.
Have a BEAUTIFUL day!

Yes, I too will do anything to put off sorting and cleaning. I love what you did with the hoop...adding the graphics was the perfect touch. I too have been using these hoops to hold muslin that I have rubber stamped. Going to try more for Valentines Day.

Hi there, as soon as I saw your fabric art I had to go into my sewing room to find two bigger round hoops I got at thrift store. Whenever I see them there I grab them, not even knowing at time what I'll do with them.
Love, love your hoop, fabric art. The color of fabric and pattern is so pretty with the great stenciling. Wish I had an oval hoop like yours but won't let that stop me. You sure inspired me
Had to get the hoops out and the fabric I have in mind for now. Can change it as the season or mood dictates is one of things I love about this project. I can't leave things the same for long, have to redo them as my mood or need speaks to me.
Love your blog and projects. Happy 2013

Cleaning is a drag...ha..ha..ha, creating beauty is a lot more fun and rewarding.

It turned out beautifully and the graphic is the perfect touch! Love the fabric too...

Your laundry bin is so cute, pretty. It's always nice to make something look prettier in some way if you can. My laundry area is a closet at one side of our mud room (we live in a single wide 16x80 mfg. home), so it's enclosed. When anybody does come I close the doors. Not a pretty sight actually.

Can you just stop???? Seriously, when I don't want to clean, the only thing that usually happens is me procrastinating on the computer, me puttering in the garage, or me just avoiding cleaning. Rarely do the light bulb moments to create works of art come at this time. This is so fun, thanks for sharing. Now go clean.

That's true. For me, art was a bit hard to understand before especially modern art but since I have taken a few classes that taught how people perceive beauty and how to appreciate it I have been better. Also when it comes to beauty and appreciation, this is a good start: http://fabricbanners.net.au/
