Today,s make is Rory, made by Lindsey in the quilting class, from papier-mache letters.   Each letter has had 2 layers of cotton quilters wadding laid on the top surface and then covered with a bright fabric. The fabric was cut larger than the front by about 2cm and folded down the outer and inner sides of the letters. On curved areas you will need to cut V shapes into this excess area to allow the fabric to lie flat. The fabric was glued on using spray adhesive and PVA glue. The inner and outer edges were then covered with matching satin ribbon making sure that the end joins were over lapping and folded back to cover up raw edges. These are light weight and will be hung on the wall of Rory's bedroom.
