TNT - Chalkboard Fabric


I found this really cool chalkboard fabric in Little Blessings last winter when I drove through Crossville, and I thought it would be a nice little gift for my youngest granddaughter, Reaghan.  She’s almost 8 and still loves to do anything artsy like drawing, coloring, etc.


Here she is with some of her artwork :*)  I think she shows great promise, don’t you?

Once I got home, I picked up these cute fabrics from The Quilter’s Path that I thought would work great for a little chalkboard wall hanging.  



Reaghan is really into peace symbols right now, and I love the lines on the fabric, like notebook paper!


And here is the finished product! I was very surprised at how easy it was to sew through the tough chalkboard fabric.  I expected at least one broken needle, you know what I mean?!?  But it just sewed up like butter! 



I wanted to keep it simple because realistically I know she won’t play with it all that long before something else catches her attention :*)  But without the little flower on the top corner, it was really dull.  

I am happy with this I think.  I hope Reaghan enjoys it!  =^..^=

Hugs & Blessings!

  5. Such a cute chalk board. I love the fabric you used. I've seen that "chalk fabric" a few years ago at Paducah. I'm delighted to see your finished gift for Reaghan.

  6. Chalkboard fabric? I had no idea such a thing existed. I have two little girls (ages 5 and 8) and a few young nephews. They would *love* something like this. What a beautiful project you've made, I'm sure Reaghan will love it! Hope you don't mind if I "borrow" your idea ;-)
