Shabby Chic Fabric Mirror !
I have made quiet a few now, Most of my friends have one that I have made for them and given them as birthday presents over the years!This one is on my bedroom wall and made from white cotton fabric and 100 % cotton lace. Some of the others I have made using cream calico fabric and 100 % cotton lace and a rose for decoration ! They are very easy to make !
I made another one so I could do a tutorial to show you all how to make one ! Lovely for any girl for her bedroom.
You will need a mirror the one I'm using is height 11 inches or 28 cm and width 7 & 3/4 inches or 19.5 cm . When I brought these mirrors they were wrapped in plastic wrap and on an oval piece of cardboard which I use in the next step .
Trace around the mirror with a pencil with a
border of just under 1&1/5 inches or 3cm.
Then cut it out.
Now measure around the outer edge of ruffle and either sew or stitch lace on. I used lace that was already gathered. I sticthed it to the inside edge .
