Hi Lisa, I used about one and one half the width of my openings, but 90" for a 60" opening would work well. Have Fun! xo

Hi Pearl, So glad to be able to share this and to hear about church groups getting together to create their very own art piece! Makes my heart happy :) For some reason your email is not showing up on my end to be able to email you the template. Hmmm? If you send me an email at: debbiesaenz@comcast.net I'll reply with the template attached. I look forward to hearing form you to be able to send you the template. Blessings, Debbie

Hi Tina! I just sent you an email with the attachment. Have Fun! xo
Hi Kate! Oh how exciting! I created this on a 10" x 10" canvas.
Hi Michelle! Make sure you don't overload the surface with DM or it will spill over the edge/es. I usually start by "outlining" the edges then filling in the middle until it's level. Also, make sure you keep it undisturbed on a level surface until dry! Handmade gifts are the best kind of gifts to give and receive! xo

Hi Penny, I used velum paper to print the Bible verse on. I sprayed it with fixative after I printed it to keep the ink from running. Hope this helps! Xo

Hi Kristina! Well, Chico has not even tried to jump over them or knock them down...at least yet! If he leaned on them with his paws, maybe it would knock it down? Not sure since at least the ones we have in our regular size doorways are pretty secure. It also depends on how much tension you allow. I have mine pretty tight. The problem we are having though is that he now keeps getting on the family room couch and the couch in our bedroom! UGH!! I'm trying to find a solution for that now. I keep telling my kids I can build him a really cool doghouse...outside! But that has not gone over too well...still in a pradicament with Mr. Chico! Blessings xo, Debbie

I had this tutorial on one of my Pinterest boards. See what you think... http://whatthecraft.com/tutorial-how-to-design-and-sew-a-slipcover-part-1/ Blessings xo

Hi Jenny! We are in San Antonio now and walked by the river in downtown San Antonio last night. Amazing! We woke up to the local church bells playing "A Mighty Fortress is Our God" this morning...thought I was in heaven!!!! Wow!! I'm on foot today while Hernando is in meetings. I plan on walking over to several art studio/galleries I found nearby. Thanks for telling me about Salado, maybe we can work it in, sounds like a fun! I hope all is well, give my love to the kids!
