Hey Friends! First of all, I wanted to give you a heads up that I’m over at SAS Interiors today talking about how I create a meaningful home. Her new series has been so much fun, so be sure to head over and read all of the posts!

I’ve been busy gathering and making accessories for Miss E’s big girl room. Now that our garage is full of black, white, gray and pink room decor, I think it’s about time I clean out the guest bedroom and start to put it all together! What do you think?! Today, I’m sharing a quick project I put together for her future wall gallery. I made this Fabric Scrap Wall Art using the Silhouette Fabric Interfacing.

I’ve officially decided to go with an industrial chic look for her room, but also want to add some feminine and youthful flair. After all, Miss E is only two :)

The frame had the scrappy look I love but is also classy at the same time. I put this together in less than an hour and I bet you could do the same.

To do this project on your Silhouette, you will need the Silhouette Fabric Interfacing and the Fabric Blade.

If you know me by now, you will know that I am ALL about mixing different textures, so I went a little unconventional with this project and mixed black burlap, white cotton and gray fleece.

Start by cutting your pieces of fabric to the size you desire and then cut your interfacing slightly smaller. In my case, I was using a 4X6″ frame so I cut my pieces to 5X7″ to make sure I had enough left over fabric for the edges.

Place the rough side of the interface again the fabric and iron, then gently peel the backing off and place it on your cutting mat.

After you have your design ready to go, change your settings to the Fabric Cotton Setting Using Interface. The suggested blade level is a 3 for cotton, but I changed it to a 10 to cut the burlap and the fleece. It worked beautifully on the fleece and I only had to trim a few pieces of the burlap.

Place your design onto the base fabric and iron over it, this will allow it to temporally stick together. It’s definitely not meant to be permanent. Stitch.

Then place the second layer down, iron and stitch.

I was lucky and got this frame from Minwax at SNAP this year and stained it in their new Black Onyx Color Express Stain. I placed the fabric in the frame that’s it my friends. A fun little Black and White Wall Art piece.

The interfacing is extremely easy to use and I think I’m going to have a lot of fun with it.

    This is very nice!! I will definitely give this a try. I was thinking of using other colors for this. Maybe contrasting colors perhaps. It is great that you have given a step by step tutorial, will surely mark this page. Thank you!
