About a year ago, I made a button initial pillow for my granddaughter Adrianna. With the upcoming arrival of my second granddaughter, I decided to make button monogram wall art. For inspiration, I looked on Pinterest for ideas. Here is the finished product:
First thing I did was buy some gray and white chevron fabric (from Hobby Lobby). The fabric was $6.99 a yard.
Next I purchased an assortment of pink buttons from Mellow Moon Supply. Lynda was very helpful in helping me select the colors I needed and I received my buttons in just a couple of days. I spent about $20 on buttons.
I purchased a 16 x 20 canvas from Joann's on sale for $6.99.
Next I tried out some different fonts and decided on a modified Times New Roman font for the letter C. I sized it and printed it out to fit the canvas.
I laid out the buttons to get an idea of placement.
Then I began sewing and sewing and sewing. It wasn't really that bad. It took three nights while watching TV. I wrapped the fabric around the canvas, stapled it to the back, trimmed, and finally added clear wrapping tape to finish it off.
