TGICF: Thank Goodness It’s Creative Friday

It’s been a long time since I’ve felt crafty. I think my last crafty stint was compiling that free craft e-book over there on the right.

But I’m happy to say that after a long break, it’s baaack!

Because I’ve been hibernating for awhile, I chose a super duper easy project to ease into.

Basically, I took an old canvas with a painting I wasn’t too excited about and repainted over it in white.


Then, I reused leftover French Toile fabric I had from one of my favorite projects-a recovered antique typewriter I talked about here and here.

And I wrapped it up like a little present using fabric glue to keep it in place. {love that thing!}

It works either as a hanging fabric wrapped canvas or as a frame. If you look close you can still see my original painting through the fabric. I think it looks pretty cool.

Here they are, my two French toile covered projects side by side:
