Fabric Silhouettes

I made these silhouettes of the kids using a window frame I got at a garage sale.

Here's how:  First take a profile picture, enlarge it to the size you want, and print it. 
















Cut it out, then trace it onto the paper side of Heat n Bond.

Iron that to the wrong side of your fabric.
Cut out the image.

Peel off the Heat n Bond paper and iron onto background fabric.


Frame it.  I used spray adhesive to stick the fabric in each panel, then I hot glued trim around the edges.


I paid $1.50 for the window frame, and $2 for the trim.  I had the other fabric and Heat n Bond already, so it was an inexpensive and fun project!
