Canvas Teddy Bear to Flower

Happy Weekend everyone!

I hope that everyone's weekend is going fantastic.

Mine is.

My husband took this next week off from work

so I am super duper excited about that!

Sorry about my two day break,

I wasn't being lazy I swear!

I have just been working non stop on my projects

so be super pumped because I am going to reveal

some cool things!

First off I found this awesome fabric flower on Make it and Love it

Check it out, she gives a tutorial and everything.

Once I saw it I thought 'I could do that'

So I have been on the hunt for some canvas.

Now, canvas at any retail store is expensive

but when I was at Good Will what did I find!?

This teddy bear.

Now for $1.50 I knew that I just had to have it

and that it was just what I needed.

So I took it home, spray painted it so it was a solid color

(didn't want any of the teddy bear peeking through the fabric!)

Used modge podge on the back of the fabric to stick it on

to the canvas.

Had a very interesting time using a regular stapler to

fold the fabric around the edges

(note to self: borrow a stapler gun next time!)

Followed the flower making instructions from

Make it and Love it

and Voila! A flower emerged!

My husband said it was cute

isn't it though!

Stay tuned next for a fabulous antique find!

Also check out my side bar for link parties I am joining today!
