Okay so like Christine, I have decided to share some of my past projects. Now keep in mind my projects were nowhere near as detailed or numerous. However, now that I am as isolated as she is, more so in fact, I anticipate some great things. But how fun for us all to watch my crafting dedication, skill and production grow. How fun.
This project I would like to share was a gift for my friend Emily's baby, Mary Ellen Jane, or Mellen. She was born almost two years ago so this is an older project, but don't be fooled she didn't receive it prior to or immediately after her birth. Oh no, I must remain consistent. I made the promise of an amazing hand crafted gift and then sat on it and let the guilt be my driving force. La Force'!
|Similar to what Christine was explaining, I used a transfer pencil to copy the image |
on to my fabric. To find this image I just did a search on Google images.
|Apparently I got very stitch happy and decided to do some fabric layering and outlining. Nothing too advanced here I basically just left the foot up on the sewing machine to have freedom with my lines.|
|Apologies for the poor picture. But this is a close up of Miss Mellen's little baby name.|
|Me and Mellen!|
