animal art

This was another fun project for the baby's room. I'm trying not to let the room get too themey, so instead of birds or trees, I thought a squirrel, butterfly, and dog would be fun, and they're all animals we see regularly. The dog silhouette is our pup Kobe, and I just used clip art for the other two outlines.

A few months ago, I saw and mentally filed away this idea of appliqueing fabric birds to the wall. Then, a few weeks ago, a co-worker cut out the same photo from magazine for me! I found the instructions for making the starch (so that the fabric can be removed from a wall) at how about orange, but I reduced her recipe to 3 tsp cornstarch, 1/8 c cold water, and 1 c boiling water. It's such a clean look on the canvas.

  1. Did you have to worry about threads coming loose at the edges?

    Also, you gonna name that baby Aubrey/Aubrie or what? Seriously, it's the best name ever. For real.


Tell me what you think! I love to read comments.
