Fabric Scrap Chalkboard

The Best Blogger Craft Ideas 2014Visit Melony at Mel Designs.

Put your sewing room's scraps to good use with this Fabric Scrap Chalkboard. This piece of DIY home decor is as functional as it is adorable. With a little bit of chalkboard paint and a lot of creativity, you can achieve this precious patchwork look. The text on the top half of the chalkboard is totally up to you. Copy the lyrics to a favorite song or jot down a well-loved poem. Make your own chalkboard sign to write notes and reminders. Keep it in reach of the kids, and they can add pictures to this cute blackboard.

You can find this project, as well as many other fabulous blogger projects, in our new eBook, The Best Blogger Craft Ideas 2014:  Decoupage, Sewing, Jewelry Making, and More free eBook.  Download your own free copy today!
