Ampersand Wall Art

It's been so long since I posted crafty things! The holidays killed my creative energy, but recently I've been feeling inspired and excited to start making things again. This is one of the easiest projects I've ever put together. It cost me nothing being that I had all the supplies in my apartment and took me about an hour one morning. Here we go!

Create a stencil with some regular printer paper. I traced the embroidery hoop I'd be using to make sure the size was right. 

Cut out your stencil and pin to felt.

Cut your felt and place on whatever fabric you'll be using for the hoop.

To attach the felt ampersand to the background, I used a basic stitch. You could also try using a blanket stitch or some other crazy stitch, but I wanted mine to be very simple.

Sew all the way around and that's it! Easiest project ever, right?
