I have had this project on my list for quite awhile. I decided I needed to see what the fuss was all about when it comes to Grey's Anatomy so needless to say I have been getting a lot of stitching done (I don't feel as lazy if I stitch and watch).





It took me forever to get a good silhouette of each of my girls. My youngest wasn't going to give me what I wanted so hers is a tad different than her sisters, but I am in love with them. They are stretched onto a piece of wood and sitting on a shelf frame! (Hubby has a thing about me posting pictures of the kidlets faces)  Grin

I was wondering what the bottom collage is, I get it now, and I don't blame him for thinking that!

I love those! Was it hard getting that stretched? I want to do silhouettes of my niece and nephew and want to do something like this. Great job! Cheesy

It wasn't hard at all. I used a staple gun and just started on one side then stapled on the opposite side (I worked left to right) then I did the top and bottom, folding the fabric almost like paper when your wrapping a gift (does that make sense?) and then just secured with more staples! I had my husband cut a piece of wood to the measurement I needed, all in all, it took ten minutes to stretch both pieces of fabric and that included ironing! :-)
