Let's print that beautiful bouquet image onto the heat transfer paper.
Fun fact: I DIY'd my own flowers for the whole wedding! Yep, this bouquet too.
Then place it on the cutting mat and send it to be cut out.
This is the tricky part! Peeling up the image without tearing it. Use your spatula tool and carefully work it up. Take your time here!
Let's prep your fabric. I ended up choosing to use a piece of lace material I had in my fabric stash. I thought it went well with the whole wedding theme, plus it's unique!! Just give it a quick press or iron to get any wrinkles out.
Lay your bouquet in the center and press it.
Here's how it looks after being pressed. I love the texture showing through, it makes the flowers come to life.
Next, lay the fabric around the inner ring of the embroidery hoop and center it as best as possible.
Now place the outer ring on top and pull the fabric tight. Once you're happy with how its placed, tighten the top screw to make it secure.
Flip it over and using sharp scissors trim away the excess fabric.
Let's finish the last detail...adding our saying to the edge.
Cut the saying in vinyl (I used a scrap piece) and weed away the extra material.
Add your transfer tape on top (again I'm using a scrap from the washi tutorial)
Place the vinyl on the embroidery hoop edge. I centered it on the right-hand side of mine.
Gah! I love it!!
You're itching to make one for yourself too now aren't you?!? Don't worry, here's a Pinterest graphic for you to pin for later so you don't forget.
This is going to be a fun addition to my family gallery wall. I'll take pictures and post them on Instagram when it's done. If you don't follow me yet come and join the party @designedtobecrafty!
Psstt...this would also make an AMAZING anniversary gift. Just saying... :)
