I need your help!!! (Read on...)
About a year ago, I embroidered these adorable drawings that my oldest son, Ethan, did of himself with his two little brothers, Caleb & Jack. My favorite part of these little guys is that he drew their arms coming out of their heads. I used the tutorial found on Little Birdie Secrets.
This embroidered piece of fabric has been floating around my house for way too long.... on the kitchen counter, on my sewing table, on the dining room table, back to my sewing table, and finally in my storage basket with the rest of my fabric stash. I need to do something with it!!! Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Some ideas I have are:
1. Staple it around a canvas (the piece of fabric is 17" x 14", so I have lots of room to work with)
2. Frame it inside a small embroidery hoop
3. Frame it in a frame
4. Uhh ... that's it. I'm all out of ideas.
I just want to get it up on the wall somewhere to make me smile. Thanks for helping come up with a creative way to display this priceless artwork!
Ok, I've had a couple WONDERFUL CREATIVE suggestions...
Dee said to make a mini quilt out of it and put little pockets at the bottom (one for each boy). They could then put their favorite little toy peeking out of their pocket. Love this!
Molly had the great idea to turn it into a pillow.
Benta mentioned to add a new block each year and turn it into an empty nest quilt when they are gone. I told her this almost made me cry! Such a wonderful idea, but I don't know if I can even think about them not living in with me!
Wanda had the thought of incorporating it into a bag/purse/tote. How cute would that be!!!
Jodi had a super cute idea. She said I could make a book cover out of it and then use the note book to record special memories of my children to help remember every precious day with them.
Keep these wonderful ideas coming! I may just have to make one of each!
