More Embroidey

The Addams family is finished! I LOVE the way these turned out. They will be nice Halloween decorations in my... bathroom? I don't think I can put these in a kitchen. They will get way too messy... I've been trying to add "new" elements every time I work on a stitching project. This time around it was filling in with fabric markers. I went with the Tulip brand but the colors were limited.... so I may try something else next time. I think the added color really pulled it all together though. Made it look less like a coloring book page (which is where I got the design) and more like a work of art ;-)


Since I knew the above project was pretty much done I had to start on a new one. I saw this idea on pinterest.... 

You take a kid's drawing:

And then trace it onto a towel and stitch away....

I'm thinking these might be something that will come in handy around Christmas time...

  2. nice.

    i used to do a similar thing when my boys were LITTLE...i'd take their 'artwork' and trace it on a Tshirt...then use fabric markers & stuff!

  3. Wish I'd known about his when my kids were small. It's a great way to preserve their 'art' on something you can actually give to them when they grow up. LOVE IT!
