Meaningful Fabric (Clothing, napkins, curtains, etc.)
Tiles ($.70 from hardware store)
Felt (I used self-adhesive felt)
|Cut felt to the size of the tile and adhere to the bottom of the tile|
|Cut fabric to the desired size of the tile|
Next, use spray adhesive to adhere the fabric to the top of the tile. Smooth out any wrinkles or lines. Then, spray the top of the fabric with polyurethane. I suggest using the spray in a well ventilated area and allow time to dry as directed on the can. Then repeat at least three times. I used three coats and might even add an additional coat next time. The polyurethane helps the fabric from discoloration and seals the fabric with a shiny top coat.
This is the perfect gift for mother's day or father's day. You can turn in childhood clothing into a usable keepsake.
