This Post Is Brought To You By The Letter W

I am bound and determined to have an alphabet wall in my living room, 
so I've been working on collecting all 26 letters in various forms.
I'm about seven letters short, but I'm almost there.
Today I'm working on my letter W.

Here's how it turned out.

I started with a chipboard letter from Hobby Lobby.
It's about 8" tall and cost $1.99 before my 40% off coupon.
I painted the edges so that it would look finished once the fabric was attached.

Then I used a foam brush to paint Mod Podge on the front of the letter. I paid special attention to making sure all the edges were covered so the fabric wouldn't begin to peel away.
I pressed the letter flat onto the fabric.
Then I placed a couple of heavy books on it and left it for a few hours
 to make sure the fabric would adhere.

Once the fabric was dry, I used a rotary cutter to trim along the edges.
This tool gave a cleaner cut than scissors since it could roll along the edges,
although I did have to use fine tip scissors in the tiny v's.

Here's the finished product.
The edges are nice and tight and the fabric is smooth.

The painted edges add a nice touch.
One letter closer to my wall display!
Thanks for stopping by and God bless.
Blessed be God, who has not turned away my prayer, nor His mercy from me!
Psalm 66:20

I love monograms and covering them in scrapbook paper is a great idea to get a unique look!
