"Sew" sign

I saw an idea like this a couple weeks ago on another blog, I can't remember which one so I can't give proper credit. 
I did mine a bit differently.
This is super easy peasy and you can make any words with this. 
Here is what you need:
  1. 3 wood plaques (4")
  2. wood letters to fit
  3. ModPodge
  4. Craft paint
  5. E6000 or other glue
  6. scrapbook paper
  7. Brushes
  8. Something to cover work surface
  9. Picture hangers (optional)
Paint the plaques on the sides and edges. Your paper will cover the inside. I used about 2 coats.
 While that is drying paint the letters. I painted them the same color as the plaques.
 
Cut your paper to fit just inside the square and use Modpodge to stick it. I did 2 coats I think.
Once everything dried I attached the hanger things to the back. Sorry, I don't know what they are called.
I used my trusty E6000 to glue the letters on. I stacked books on top so they would not shift.
Here is what they look like all done:
These were so easy to make and I love how they look. I am going to hang them up over my sewing machine.
Sorry I don't have pictures of the whole process, I am just trusting that it is simple enough that the explanation is enough.

Very cute! I love word art around the house, even if it is just stating the obvious! Thanks for commenting on my 100 follower giveaway. Don't get discouraged about not reaching goals just yet. A great way to get more blog traffic is to link projects up to linky parties, and to visit lots of other blogs, comment lots, and invite people to come check out your blog. The more your blog name is out there, the more traffic you'll get!

I hate that when I can't remember where I saw an idea, happens more often then I would care to admit. Thank you for linking your great tutorial to our bacon party. The party is still buzz-in more then 250 links. Next week I am going to do a special give away just for linkers. Thanks for grabbing my button too. Hope to see you soon.
