My niece's name in embroidery hoops!
Here was my thought process for coming up with this project:
:: Baby E. is sharing a room with her brother and needs a little something to girlie up her room.
:: I wanted a variation on the traditional wooden letter name in nurseries.
:: My sister-in-law gave me this book ages ago and I've been eager to try some embroidery! I can now say I am quite proficient at making french knots.
Fabric: Erin McMorris Weekends
Embroidery Floss: DMC
Stitches used: French knot, Backstitch, Split stitch, Stem stitch
I also used Heat n' Bond to affix the pink letters to the printed fabric.
If I did this project again I think I'd leave out the blue back-stitching, otherwise I love it! Definitely my current favorite handmade gift.
Also, check out this awesome variation that Jessica made. I love the idea of mounting it on a board to create dimension.
