This old footstool has been kicking around my attic for a while. I think I picked it up at a second-hand shop…. somewhere. I have been meaning to recover it, but haven’t gotten around to it.
I love using a Sharpie in my Zing. I especially like the result I get when I draw with a Sharpie on canvas! So, when I cleaned up my attic room and took another look at the old footstool, I decided to use this process to create a cute new cover for it.
Canvas Drop Cloth
Ultra Fine Sharpie
Sketch file (Free file includes everything except text)
Settings on Zing:
Force – 10
Offset – 0
Passes – 1
Speed – 9
Pen height – 25 sticky notes
Measure and cut your canvas.
Trim edge of canvas and paper, making sure to cut off any loose threads. Check edges again to ensure they are still stuck down to paper. If not, press again with iron.
Carefully feed canvas with freezer paper into Zing. You will not need to use the mat for this. Make sure fabric is smooth and even. Check for any loose threads and remove if found.
Insert Sharpie pen. Check settings. Cut file. Have fun watching the Sharpie draw on the canvas. Look here to watch the magic!
My new cover and a little paint…. and I have a “new” little footstool!
