I used the tutorial from http://sew-mad.blogspot.com/ as a basis but as I only had half an hour to make it I wasn't very precise. The outer fabric is part of a chemise top I bought for $5 simply so I could cut it up to make a bag. When daughter number one was sorting through my stash she found it and admired it. It isn't really linen - totally fake - but it still has a lovely look about it.
And here's the reason for the heading. I am slowly moving along with my little mosaic sign. I've never done anything like this before so I really am feeling my way. I thought it would be a good idea to protect the wood from moisture so I undercoated it with acrylic sealer.
Then I worked out the sizing of the letters on a piece of baking paper. It was transferred using the old school method of rubbing the back with grey lead and tracing hard on the front.
Here is a little friend dropping in at the front porch to say hello!
