Home Sweet Home Project

You would think after weeding that sewing machine project, I would have given up on doing anything intricate again, but not me. I’m a gluten for punishment when it comes to stuff like this. I had wanted to create something original that could be displayed in my house that was a replica of our first sticks and bricks house that we picked out together. I saw where people were taking pictures of people and things and turning them into SVG’s, so I though I can do that. So after lots of research, mistakes and missteps I succeeded in getting what I was looking for.

I took a picture of my house and then used software to turn the picture into an svg that could then be uploaded to my Cricut and cut out of vinyl and used on my reverse canvas project. I picked a smaller frame for this one, removed the canvas and painted the frame black. Weeding the design wasn’t too bad, especially compared to the sewing machine I had done.

Once the weeding was done, I applied the design to the canvas using my iron and then attached the canvas back to the frame. I added the words, “Home Sweet Home”. If you had asked me a couple months ago about doing something like this I would have freaked out, but the more I do these things, the more I like them. I am definitely getting my moneys worth out of this machine.
