I only noticed that I haven't been doing any Kyoot Khamis's these few weeks. I went to two courses in a span of 3 weeks so that kept me busy. It is time for my craft now. Here's one I made a few days ago.
Anyway a friend's daughter celebrated her 1st birthday last Sunday, so I made a handmade gift for her. It looks almost finished but it's not as I can't find my fabric glue. So the ribbon upper left is just just a poser. I should go get UHU glue for the time being. I lost my trusty fabric glue somewhere :(.
So right after finishing the present I made another one for my son. I realized I never make anything for him yet. I dreamt of making him a baby room with something like this as a decoration.
I used a frame from Ikea, but Ikea no longer sells these now. This frame was bought 3 years ago and was supposed to be used for my wedding decoration. But they were never used, and sat in a corner for months.
I used the cardboard which is the photo frame backing as template. I put it on a cotton cloth (you can use a decorative or plain paper) which I readily have and trace the shape. Cut the cloth and start decorating.
For my baby's first name I used three colours of embroidery floss and embroidered his name on the cloth. Then I glue the embroidered cloth on the cardboard. Make sure to check the placement of the cutouts of the stands (on the frame backing) before gluing so the cloth will look correct when the frame stands. As my glue is gone, I used a double sided tape as a last resort.
As the cloth has become thicker being glued to the cardboard, I can easily paste letter cutouts on it. The second and third name are made from felt. I used double sided tapes. Just cut small pieces of tape and use it everywhere to give the letters extra adherence to the cloth.
Then I put it on the frame and put a pair of felt shoes as decorations.
