It's Laundry Time!

Wednesday, February 16, 2011

Have you decorated every room in your house but the laundry room? If so, this sweet little pennant is just the thing to spruce it up. Made from canvas trading cards and a stencil that you cut on your Cricut machine, this pennant could say anything you wish. A little misting ink and fabric scraps and you’re done!

Supplies Needed:

Provo Craft:
Cricut Expression, Country Life Cartridge
Stencil Material
Ranger: Artist Trading Cards
Tattered Angels:
Glimmer Mist: Pink Bubblegum, Cherub Pink, Caribbean Blue, Cosmos, Tattered Leather, Chocolate Covered Cherries; Chalkboard Mist: Apricot, Mint Chocolate Chip, Cotton Candy; Misting Mat
We R Memory Keepers:
Crop-a-dile and small eyelets
Basic Grey: Blush Fabric, Hopscotch Buttons

Jenni Bowlin:
Vintage Style Buttons – Orange, Cream
Bazzill: In Stitch’z:
Scrapbooking Floss- Blue-Brown
Paper towels


1. Place stencil material on Cricut mat and cut letters 3”. Set the blade depth on 6 and the pressure on max. MOST IMPORTANT use the multi cut function. It will cut the letter twice. Because the stencil material is thicker than paper it needs to be cut twice to go all the way through.

2. Remove the plastic backing from cut letters and position on canvas.


1. Gently swirl mists before using to mix in the glimmer. If you shake the bottle, you will more likely have some splats of ink as you mist. Place canvas on misting mat and lightly spray from about 5-6 inches above the canvas. If it is a strong color, spray from a higher distance. Use paper towel and blot up excess ink. Set aside to dry.

  • a. L – spray first with Cherub Pink and then spray Pink Bubblegum over top. Mix colors to desired intensity.
  • b. A – spray with Chocolate Covered Cherries.
  • c. U – Spray first with Mint Chocolate and then darken with Caribbean Blue.
  • d. N – spray with Apricot.
  • e. D - spray first with Cotton Candy and then spray very lightly with Cosmos (this color is really intense).
  • f. R - spray with Tattered Leather.
  • g. Y - spray first with Mint Chocolate and then darken with Caribbean Blue.

2. Remove stencil. Allow canvas to dry. Do not remove paper backing from canvas.

3. Use the largest hole punch (3/16) on the crop-a-dile and punch 2 holes in each top edge of the pennant. Remember to leave room to set the eyelet.

4. Set eyelets in each hole.

5. Tear fabric scraps in about ½ x 12” strips. You will need 8 strips. We used 3 different fabric patterns.

6. Link pennants together with strips and tie knot in the middle of joined pennants.

7. Using the floss, sew button on to knot and tie with a bow.

8. Trim fabric strips and floss to desired length.

9. Hang.

Happy crafting!

what a great idea. the laundry room never gets any attention. If my husband ever finishes that room I will have to keep this in mind.
