In addition to the thread rack I made, there are a couple of other DIY projects I completed for Shedquarters that I thought I’d share. The first is the black and white sewing machine “art” in this photo:
Basically, this is just a canvas from the art store with the sewing machine silhouette spray painted onto it. Super easy!
The sewing machine is a free graphic that you can find here. I blew it up and printed it out, then carefully cut it out with an exacto knife to make a stencil. I taped my stencil to the canvas, and spray painted it.
I could have done a better job taping it down, and should have used heavier paper for the stencil, because I got some paint flare around the edges. But I’m okay with it. Reminds me that my sewing doesn’t need to be perfect!
My other project also involved a stencil and spray paint. I made a monogramed door mat for Shedquarters. I got the idea here.
You may recognize the D, it’s the same one I embroider on my garments as a label. (In case you are wondering why the D, my first name starts with a D. 🙂 )
I downloaded the letter template from this site, and followed the same steps as with the sewing machine picture. I got my plain rug at IKEA.
So there you go, get some spray paint and make a stencil . . . it’s a cheap and easy way to make all kinds of custom projects. 🙂
