After updating the guest bathroom with a painted and decoupaged kids’ stepstool and a few other decorative touches, I decided to finish it off with a piece of fabric art. First I “shopped my house” and came up with a 17 x 21 black poster frame and a remnant of black/white/lime green fabric (from this crib skirt) that perfectly matches the colors of the room. Then I . . .
- cut the fabric,
- sketched and embroidered a rubber ducky in the middle,
- stretched and taped the fabric over a piece of cardboard cut to size,
- and popped it behind the glass in the frame.
Perfect! Now . . . bring on those guests! P.S. I laid the picture on one of my mother-in-law’s quilts to take this photo . . . such beautiful handiwork! ♥
Another nice piece of creative art. Be Blessed, Mtetar
Thank you, Mtetar! It was really fun and looks “just right” in the room! 🙂
You’re welcome, Katherine! Be Blessed, Mtetar
Really like it…but, was expecting a real yellow rubber ducky behind glass… But, love what you did!
I THOUGHT about that . . . but I love the black, white, and lime green colors already in the room so I decided to do something a little unexpected! 🙂
Thank you! It adds a bit of whimsy to the room! 🙂
That’s gorgeous. Very creative idea, and nice upcycling too!
Thank you! It turned out to be just what the room needed to finish it off . . . and I had fun making it, too! 🙂
So cute but everything you do is cute….
Awww . . . you’re too sweet! Thank you! 🙂
Thank you, Ginny! I guess it’s kind of a grown-up’s rubber ducky! 🙂
A silly, cute, giggley ducky! So fits!!! And would fit very well in this soggy part of the world!!!! Hugs…..
Thank you! I actually added a few stitches to the beak to try to give the impression of smiling . . . it must have worked! 🙂
You combined skill and repurposing to get a great end result. Love your ducky and I’m sure your guests will too.
Thank you, Judy! He does look right at home in the room! 🙂

It is great! We are huge fans of the rubber duckie. Are you familiar with this youtube video?
My son plays sax and we love Ernie and his rubber duckie.
