SYTYCD Week 5-Faux Framed Burlap Feed sack

P1020758a
 
For this week's fabric challenge I wanted to show my framed burlap print.
The frame was found at a garage sale for......$1.00.  Boy do I love a bargain.

I love the texture of burlap and love vintage burlap feed sacks, however I don't like the high price tag that comes with them. So I decided I would make one. I made it personal to our family.
In English it means....... The house filled with love and many animals. King is my maiden name and Wills is my boyfriends last name, hence King Wills and No.2810 is our house number.

Because of the way the frame was made I had to staple the burlap to the front of the frame, I glued a braided burlap trim to cover the staples.

  22. Wow do I love this creation! I just spent the last hour looking through all your posts and reading up on how you printed the frame. You have so many wonderful posts. Your creativity is amazing. Can you tell me where you get your burlap. I went to the fabric store and I thought that the weave was very loose. Looking forward to seeing what you create this week. Wishing you a very blessed Easter...

Quick questions - do you mind sharing the names of the fonts you used for all the wording and the numbers? Also, are you willing to share the crown image?? Where did you find that?
