At some point in the last few weeks my 4-year old suddenly became aware of the letter “H” I made for his sister’s nursery (it’s only been on her wall for the entire 20 months of her life) and has since been begging me for one of his own.
Luckily for him, these fabric covered letters are one of my favorite things to make. They require very little time and money (or skill) and look just as good as the ones in stores. Not only do they make great additions to a gallery wall or mantle top, they also look great in kids’ rooms and make excellent gifts.
Cotton fabric (I was forced to buy Batman print)
Grosgrain ribbon (I bought 5ft and had about 4in left when I was finished)
Hot glue gun and extra glue sticks
1// Lay your letter face down on the batting and trace around it with a pen. Do this twice- one of the pieces will be used to cover the back of letter when you are finished. Cut the tracings out.
4// Once you have your fabric cut out, cut slits in the excess fabric around the edges so it can be easily wrapped to the letter. Work in one section at a time, gluing the strip to the edge of the letter, and then securing it to the back of the letter.
