C is for canvas

I actually started this project to go with my applique post but am just now finishing it.  It was actually very simple.  I found a cute dump truck applique at  fatcatpatterns.com and thought it would look cute in my older son's room.  The canvas I had bought for around $5 at Walmart a few years ago for a project I never completed.  First I appliqued the truck onto a piece of background fabric then raided my husbands toolbox and used his staple gun to attach the fabric to the canvas.  I have one more canvas and I think I'll make a train to go along with the truck.  What I love best about this quick, easy project was that it cost me very little.  The canvas was cheap and the fabric was all out of my scrap pile!

  1. This is so cute! I love that it's appliqued but on canvas. So clever! Love the little bit of dirt peeking out the top of the truck.

    Your blog is adorable! I love everything you've done so far. Good luck... it's VERY addicting once you get going but also tons of fun.
