Dimensions: 11" x 14"

This idea popped into my head on a flight from NY to FL. I had just visited my parents, and spending time with my very creative mother got me all fired up to make more artwork, so my brain was on a roll while I was trapped in my airplane seat.
We had been talking about creative lettering on bar signs, and I wanted to try my hand at making a fabric picture styled like an artsy sign. I wasn't too enthusiastic about cutting letters by hand, however, so this idea got pushed aside for a while until I discovered DIY cutting machines.
Once I'd purchased a Cricut of my own, however, I wanted to put the machine through its paces and really test out how detailed it could cut. This picture was the perfect opportunity, so I fleshed out my idea, made a template, and went to town.
I've included a picture of the template I created in Illustrator along with the finished fabric piece and a couple of detail photos.
