Fabric Posters by Erin Jang

Isn't this lovely? Erin Jang made this fabric poster for her sister's baby shower. We love how versatile this project is - use leftover fabric scraps or have fun picking out colors and patterns that work well together.

Though she doesn't detail it on her blog, The Indigo Bunting, we'll hazard a guess that Erin cut out traced letters from fabric pieces and spray mounted them onto paper before framing them.

She made a second poster for her nephew who is nicknamed "Cob-cub" (his real name is Jacob). Erin is a graphic designer and illustrator so her interesting fabric choices are no surprise.

If you're intimidated by fabric stores, don't be - we've always found the people who work in them to be helpful and encouraging to the uninitiated. All fabric stores should make cuts of at least a half yard small and many will cut as small as a "fat quarter" (around 18" x 22") which, if you're buying quilt-weight cottons, should cost around $2 or $2.50 ($1.50 at Jo-Ann's).

It should be fairly easy to find number or letter templates on the web (here are a variety of letter ones) which you can enlarge on a copier or on your computer to print until you get the size you want.

Looking through Erin's blog she clearly has a great eye and is a talented designer (her primary work is for Esquire). She also creates custom invitations and design work.
