One % {P}inspiration: Art Edition!

It's Pinspiration Challenge Time! You might remember our post from last week, we've teamed up with Amanda from Our Humble A{Bowe}d and Sarah from Russet Street Reno to bring you our One % {P}inspiration Art Challenge! (Thank you so much to Amanda for organizing One % {P}inspiration!!)

 I decided to tackle some guest room artwork. (You can check out last weeks post to see our inspiration).
All I needed was:
~My sewing machine, some scrap fabric, and some RED thread! This project cost us $0 to make! 

It was really simple:
  1. I cut out a square of White Fabric large enough to fill the space inside the matting of an Ikea Ribba Frame.
  2. I cut out a bunch of triangles, large and small ones. 
  3. I picked where they should go pinned them in place and ran two stitches in a contrasting thread to hold them in place! 

Lastly I used my sewing machine's Letter function to write a little message . . . I chose "Be Our Guest" because after all it is going in the guest room!

Here's the final product:

Now it's your turn, what has Pintrest inspired you to tackle and please link it up to our first ever linky party:

  1. Omg...that is adorable! And, the green lamps look awesome in your guest room.

  2. Such a cute idea! I love that you were able to make it using the things you already had.

  3. Super duper cute! So cheerful & fun -- I might have to make something like this for my little girl's room. Thanks for the inspiration.

  4. Very cute!! Now I need to figure out if my sewing machine has the gift of writing...

  5. Very cute.

    I made your salad with the roasted sweet potatoes and balsalmic vinegar was oh, sooo good :)


  6. Very cute.....I'll have to see if my sewing machine can do that also...very cool:)


  7. Very cute!! I too love your green lamps in there! :)

  9. Ashli, love your artwork, but even better I love those curtains that you added the red fabric too...really makes them pop. Kathy A, Brisbane, Australia

  10. This is so sweet great job. Does that mean all the awesome things I've been pinning I actually have to attempt to make one day eeeek!

  11. Cute!! I see the green lamps! ;)

  12. I love this artwork! It goes really well with the curtains which I adore with the red stripe! I am also super jealous that your sewing machine has a letter function!
