Fabric Shuttles

Fabric Shuttles

     These are Boye shuttles I prettied up with left over fabric.


1.)  Sand the shuttle lightly (roughen it up).  If you fabric is too light and shuttle, too dark, paint white acrylic paint on top of the shuttle.
2.)  Add decoupage to the top shuttle and back of fabric.  Leave the fabric a little larger than the shuttle.
3. )  Once, dry, trim the fabric, next to the shuttle. 
4.)  Add another coat of decoupage to the top and side.  Repeat one more time.
5.)  Once dry add three coats of colorless fingernail polish.  Allow the coats to dry, before adding the next coat.

I like them all so well, I don't know if I could sell them.

But things for sale can be found HERE.
