How to Make a Photo "Guest Book" Wall Hanging for Your Weddingcomments (6) May 23rd, 2009
How often do you plan on dragging out the guest book to remember good times? Probably not very often. I had a very nice guest book at my wedding, and I don't even know where the darn thing is! I discovered another way to collect names and sweet nothings from your guests. While looking for picture frames for Mother's Day, I saw a large wall frame with a white mat that was designed to be signed by guests—perfect for the occasion of a wedding. I thought about it, and decided to create a wall hanging "guest book" project for quilter and sewing brides-to-be! Here's how to make a fabric version of the frame I saw in the craft store...
What you'll need:
- A digital photo of the couple
- Inkjet printable fabric sheets (I like iron-on Printed Treasures, www.printedtreasures.com)
- High-thread-count muslin
- Decorative threads of your choice...maybe the colors of the wedding
- Warm and White cotton batting (or other low-loft batting)
Print the photo on a sheet of printable fabric. I like iron-on Printed Treasures because it stays nice and flat against the base fabric after it's been appliquéd on. Crop your photo into a square (or whatever shape you like).
After you make this project, show off your work to other members!
