I went to Hobby Lobby for fabric and came out with fabri AND these chipboard letters. They were 40%OFF. I thought that was a great deal.
I started by painting each letter a different color. I painted the backs and side a color. I painted the tops white.
I decieded to cover them in some bright colored fabric from my stash! I just used some scraps. I played around with differnt combinations until i found one that I loved. (notice the first letter is already covered in fabric...I didn't like the look because I forgot to paint the top white so I painted it and recovered.)
I traced each letter onto paper and then pinned the paper to each fabric and cut.
I then sewed a basting stich down the center and ruffled both pieces. I then top stitched them in place.
I then hotglued some yo-yos on some of the letters and hot glued the chipboard to my denim ruffle.
Here is the YO YO TUTORIAL that I used.
Here is a close up of the different colored side. I wish that the letters would have been a little thicker to show off the pops of color. But at 1.06 a letter I got over it.

It was an awesome 70 degrees today here in Kansas so I am ready for SPRING!!
I kept moving it around the house until I found where I wanted it. I hung it across our front window, but I didn't like the denim hanging down the middle of the window. So I twisted the ends into little rosettes around the nail I hung it with.
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!!
