stitched art

my daughter drew the cutest little kitten face a few years ago and i've held on to it thinking i would frame it someday. yesterday, i was in the mood to make something and so i decided to trace her drawing and stitch her artwork.

i grabbed some vintage fabric that came from april's grandmother's house. i love the dots on this. it's hard to tell in the photo, but they are a blueish color, very pretty and girly. i traced the picture with an invisible ink pen onto the fabric an then stitched around the image with a small needle and embroidery floss. very easy! all i had to do next was frame it.

and then hang it, of course. :)

i haven't gotten to the hanging part yet.

don't hate.


  1. now that's just freakin adorable!! what a great idea to cherish her art!

  2. In addition to being cool, crafty, and cute, you are a genius!! I love this idea!! As soon as I read it I started thinking back on all of the things D has drawn to see if I can do this with any of hers. I want to get her to draw a few things and frame a series for her wall. Such a great idea! Thanks for sharing!!

  3. this is perfect! LOVE IT!
    I need to do this, if only I could stitch! LOL!
