Sophie In Bubble Letters
Sophie In Bubble Letters – Since voting is over on Extreme Makeover, I thought I’d post my daughter’s name rosette letter instructions. Did you know which one was mine? I kind of fell in love with that tent that was made. Man, that’s sweet. I can’t wait to find out who did it.
Yes, her name is Sophie. I don’t think I’ve ever told you that before. I think I was worried about sharing too much information online…but it’s getting a little awkward to call her “my baby”. So yeah… now you know.

1. First you need to cut out your letters. I first drew them on paper and then traced them on my cardboard. I found it easiest to cut them out with an Exceto knife, but scissors will probably work just as well.

2. Take the cardboard letter and place it on top of the fabric (you actually want to do this so that you trace the reverse image onto the fabric, so place the letter front side down – I messed up the first time).
5. Using a brush, apply mod podge to the front of the cardboard letter and press it to the fabric exactly according to the outline you drew earlier.
6. Using a hot glue gun, fold the cut fabric under and glue it to the end of the letter. At first I thought I would use mod podge for this, but that didn’t work well. Trust me and use a glue gun.
It looks a little scary because it’s still wet from mod podge and with hot glue, but you get the idea.

7. Make your rosettes. I went through the tutorials until I found one that I liked. I didn’t like the look of the raw edges, so I wrapped the raw edges. You will need lots of 1″ strips of fabric for your rosettes. I think I made about 178 rosettes of various sizes for about 10″ letters. My “s” is about 10″ “o” and “e” were about 7 1/2″ tall.
I don’t have any more pictures of the rest of the process, but it’s quick and easy once your rosettes are done.
8. Divide your rosettes into similarly sized piles (I made 3 piles for small, medium and large rosettes).
9. Start with the larger rosettes and glue them onto the letter, applying glue to the bottom of the rosette and then placing it where it looks good visually. If you use more than one color, make sure you use some of both.

10. Fill the gaps with medium-sized rosettes. Once you’ve filled the gaps, be sure to apply glue to the sides that touch the other rosettes, as well as the bottom.
The key is to really squeeze them. Don’t distort the rosettes, but make sure you can’t see the cardboard peeking through.
As for the edges, I did my best to make the rosettes fit the shape of the cardboard. It was much easier than I thought.
My husband helped me hang them. We drove a nail between the two if rosettes and nailed directly to the wall.
