Painted Fabric Patch Frame (tutorial)

Painted fabric patch frame. {DIY Fabric picture frame}.

How many times we have small scraps of fabric left from our DIY projects? And we are always looking to utilize them into making something else.

I had been thinking of using the fabric scraps left from the pillows, I made for my bedroom for a while now.

So, I came up with this Painted Fabric Patch Frame.

A very quick and easy wall DIY project to match my room accents.

The chevron lines I traced using the template you can find here.  I just love how it can simply become a part of any other setting if I decide to change things around my home.

Moreover the painted heart on the right corner of the frame makes it a beautiful gift for Valentine’s Day.

 I love chevron on the family silhouette canvases.

(Find the tutorial to make Family silhouette with free printable chevron templates in 4 different sizes.)

  

Painted Fabric Patch Frame

 

You Will Need:

  • Fabric
  • Paint (acrylic, fabric or any paint you like)
  • Paint brush (I used size 1 for my small design)
  • Double sided tape and scissors

Make It:

 

Start by cutting the scraps to your frame’s size.  I chose to have a 3 column patch-work style  You can patch rows, squares or anything your heart desires.  Next I ironed the seams on the sides and traced my chevron design on one of them.  If you want a chevron trace, you can print it in 4 different sizes HERE.

Now you can either sew or stick the patches together.  I just wanted an easy fix (and frankly I don’t have a sewing machine) so I used double sided tape and stuck the seams of the scraps over each other.  The result was pretty neat.

Then I place the mirror over the fabric to locate where I wanted to draw my heart.
