How to Make A Gallery Wrapped Canvas and Create Your Own Unique and Beautiful Wall Art | DIY Video Series

Here it is! The first video in my DIY Craft and Sewing Series - How to Create a Wrapped Canvas.

You can turn just about any flexible fabric-based item into a wrapped canvas. In this video, I demonstrate the technique with a design from my Dress Form collection stitched on fuchsia canvas. You can use any special item you want to upcycle
- a beloved race t-shirt, a square of fabric from an outgrown dress, an old cross stitch...the options are endless!

If you are a paper person, you can print out this tutorial I adapted my technique from: Lyric Art's Tutorial: mounting textile art – gallery wrapped canvas.

Here is a Supply List to get you started with this project
Canvas Fabric
Embroidery Threads
Duck Billed Applique Scissors (for trimming the design after stitching)
Artist Canvas - Add at least 2 inches to both the height and width of your design
OR Build Your Own Custom Canvas Size with Canvas Stretcher Bars

Low Loft Fleece Batting
Wonder Under Iron On Fusible
