Hi, my name is Carmen. Welcome to Beyond The Fringe!
I love sewing, crocheting, paper crafts, painting, doodling and more. I also offer digital stamps and vintage graphics, many for free. I am a mom of 4 and a grandmother of 10 adorable grandkids, whom I love to make things for.

Soft and Reflective...
I had at least a 12" strip left over, so I pulled out an Ikea Malma Mirror and played around with it a bit.
I covered the mirror with some masking tape.
Then I placed the fabric over top and cut out the center of the fabric and snipped to the corners.
With a brush, I mod podged the wood and then placed the material over it, and brushed a coat of mod podge over it.
I let it dry, and did it again.
This shows the second coat--you can still see that it's a bit wet.
I made sure to mod podge the sides and back as well. Once it was dry, I removed the tape from the mirror and glued some cord on the inside of the wood bordering the mirror. I used glossy accents to do this because it happened to be handy.
Here is the finished mirror:
Kai seemed to love the mirror and the pillows....and since I still have quite a bit of material left, my DIL asked if I'd do two more matching mirrors (she has a few Malma Mirrors waiting for some TLC).
I think they'll look real cute in his room!
I had a lot of fun doing this project, and it only took one afternoon! I love the Malma Mirrors. There's so much you can do with them. Check out this link for another project I make with these.
Thanks for visiting!!
