It's been a while since I sat down and took my time crafting anything. My baby girl is due in about 2.5 months - so I think this has something to do with it. Yesterday I decided to make some wall art to hang in her nursery.
I used embroidery floss, and printed out the word Love for a template. I used the printed template to poke holes through the paper & canvas using a pin. This way I had a guide for the letters.After I finished the word love- I used a piece of fabric (with my owl design from Spoonflower) to make a heart balloon. I stitched around the heart, left a small opening and filled it a little pillow stuffing little to add dimension. Once I put the stuffing in- I just finished stitching around the heart.I love how it turned out, and it was fun playing with my own fabric design. Let the nesting begin....
UPDATE: Owl fabric available in my spoonflower shop.
Omgosh congrats!!!! How did I miss this news?! So happy for you!!
