With our help and instructions such an endeavor will feel like a whiff of magical wand. So are you ready to make your baby-girl feel like a fairytale princess? Ok, then, let’s begin.
For the two dove wall embroidery project you’ll need:
~ A photo frame of your choice. You can coordinate the style and the color of the frame with the room’s decorative theme. The piece should be large enough to accommodate both birds of machine embroidery designs two doves plus the ribbon.
~ A piece of fabric for the designs to be embroidered on. You can coordinate color and print of the fabric with the décor of the room. The fabric shouldn’t be stretchy. Quilter’s cotton, linen, canvas – any more-or-less sturdy fabric will be ok. Try avoiding see-through textiles like flour sack, for they might “show” the stabilizer on the back of the embroidery.
~ Medium weight cut-away stabilizer.
~ Thread and needles. Rayon or polyester threads will suit here best. The choice of needles will largely depend on the size of the threads. A 75/11 sharp needle is the safe choice for most.
~ Temporary spray adhesive (We prefer Gunold KK-100, but any good quality temporary spray adhesive can be used instead).
~ Machine Embroidery Designs Two Doves. You’ll be separating the pair so that they could recreate a fairytale picture of birds carrying a ribbon to their favorite princess. To make “positioning” of the birds easier, you can print out their templates.
~ A decorative ribbon. A real ribbon (not embroidered) is used in the project not only for an extra embellishing purpose. The ribbon will have quite a utile and functional role in the composition. You can pin on the ribbon all those cute little snap-photos from your Instagram account, keeping a lovely little illustrated log of how your baby grows.
~ 3M™ Foam & Fabric 24 Spray Adhesive to glue the fabric to the board of the frame. If you won’t glue the fabric, it could come off of the board, sagging under the weight of the embellishments (ribbons, pictures etc.)
~ Scissors and textile glue. The glue is for the ribbon to be attached to the fabric. Instead of gluing the ribbon, you can sew it onto the fabric.
Now let’s start with the enchanted project of ours. You’ll be embroidering two doves on a distance from each other. The embroidered doves will be holding a real ribbon, sewn or glued to the area near their feet. The distance between the doves should be large enough for the ribbon to accommodate all the tokens that you’d like to pin on it. Mind that the gravity works even with the fairytale doves like these. The weight that you’ll be attaching to the ribbon should not be too heavy.
So enough with the theory, let’s get down to business. To get a fairytale picture for your little princess’s room, keep with the following plan:
The embroidery part
1 – Spray the cut-away stabilizer with temporary adhesive and attach to the fabric. It should be applied carefully, no wrinkling is allowed.
2 – Hoop the fabric.
3 – Stitch the first bird of machine embroidery design two doves. You won’t have to worry about perfect centering of the design. Even if the bird will come out slightly “tilted” it would look like an artistic touch. Two doves will be flying after all!
4 – Repeat with the second dove.
5 – After both designs are done, cut away loose threads. Don’t be tempted to leave the stabilizer on the back of your embroidery without cutting it away. Such double layering won’t glue well to the board of your frame. Cut the stabilizer just like you would with any other embroidery project.
The framing part
1 – Iron the embroidered fabric.
2 – Remove the glass of the photo frame. During this stage of the project will be working with the board of the photo frame.
3 – Spray the board with the glue (3M™ Foam & Fabric 24 Spray Adhesive or any similar type).
4 – Smooth the embroidered fabric on the board and let it dry. Glue the edges of the fabric to the back of the board.
5 – Put the board with the glued fabric into the frame. The doves are ready to “carry” the ribbon.
6 – Attach the ribbon so that it would make a nice “fairytale” curve. If you want to you can shape ribbon into additional loops or bows at parts where the doves “carry” it. To help with the ribbon hold its shape you can spray it with fabric stiffener. Aleene’s Stiffen Quick Fabric Stiffening Spray is great for shaping ribbons into bows. However, good old starch spray can work here too.
Now you have your enchanting Cinderella-style dove decorative wall hanging. You can showcase precious moments of you and your baby spent together, greeting cards or other sweet trinkets.
