DIY Quilted Picture Frame

Crafting has always been my thang...

 ...even way back when I was an awkward, lil' elementary-schooler that wore NSYNC T 's because it was "cool".  I tell ya, it's a darn good thing crafting never gets "old" because sportin' the boy band t's is bad enough, and I sure would hate to add on another embarrassing trend that I am guilty of following.  


As a youngin', I only wished to be a craftertise (craft+expertise) just like my momma.  You name it, and she's made it.  Among all of her creations, my favorite has to be her quilts.  I swear, she has sewn the most beautiful quilts.  They are all so detailed and you could tell every stitch was so carefully done.  What can I say, she is a pro. 

Now, here I am, years later, 
and still hoping that one day
I'll become a craftertise just like my momma.   
One day, one day I'll get some quilting lessons.  
Until then, my easy DIY projects will have to do. 

I really enjoyed this one. 
Sure, it's a cinch, but it was a blast.  
And, if I do say so myself, 
it looks pretty darn cute in my kitchen.

The best part:  it took all of 5 minutes.

All you gotta do is select a picture, frame, fabric, 
and work some magic with the glue...
and TA DA!

Easy peasy pie.  



  1. Great project and love the part about going to fabric store with your mom. It was and still ids a candy store to me!

  2. I want to be a crafterise too:):) Love your simple to go pull out my fabrics, oh the possibilities are endless, isn't it?:)

  3. This is a fantastic idea. It isn't easy for me to make these kinds of things (not talented with a sewing needle or machine) which is why I love not only reading about how you made this but I appreciate the talent it takes! It's beautiful.

  4. Great idea. So simple...but the possibilities!!

  5. Great idea! I always stare blankly at the space of above the stove, I would have never thought to spruce it up :)


Thanks for your comments! I will respond to each and every one of them!
