Book quote on the book holder; February's Silhouette Challenge

Recently, I found a Facebook group for my area where things are given freely to people who would like them or need them.  It's a great group and we are saving the landfills of all kinds of junk.  And besides, one mans junk is another man's treasure.  

When this popped up I couldn't sit back and not try to get it.  And I was elated when I was picked!


Not only did I need it, I knew right away that this would be my project for my February Silhouette Challenge.  



I saw this quote pinned on Pinterest a while back and new it was the perfect one for my shelf.  I cut the quote with my Silhouette from contact paper so that it would stick to the fabric.  It's the same process that I have used in the past with Lucy's birthday shirts. 


Using fabric paint and a sponge dobber, I painted the quote onto the fabric.



Once I was done painting, I used my blow dryer to heat set the paint.  After it was dry, I pulled up the contact paper and then washed the fabric.



I put it all back together after the wash was done and LOVED the way it turned out.  The only thing I have left to do is cite the quote which I am going to do with a Sharpie on the bottom corner.

  2. Hi Randi,

    This is a fantastic project!!! I would love to have this in my house. Love, love, love the quote you used, it's so true.

    "The Giving Tree" is one of my all-time favorite books too! My favorite book to read out loud to my Grandson right now is "The Tickle Monster". It's so fun. I truly love to read out loud to kids! I think that's why my kids did so well in school, I was reading out loud to them from the day they were born. "Just one more book Mom, please." was always met with, "Okay, one more book before bedtime!", which often turned into 3 more books or even 5. I'm not sure if they really loved listening to me read so much or if they just didn't want to go to sleep! Haha! My dream job would be reading out loud to kids or doing voice-over for audio books for kids.

    Peace, Love and Joy,
    Joyce
