And before I knew it, it had been nearly two weeks since I last blogged. Yikes. My only excuses are having a toddler and the accompanying tiredness that comes part and parcel of said toddler. Meaning that when my nearly two year old is asleep instead of blogging/creating the only thing I want to do is to stay cuddled up beside her and nod off, in fact sometimes I fall asleep before she does. True story. Anyway I’m going to try to blog twice a week, I think if I set myself a target and make that target public I am more likely to do it!
Today I’m going to share another one of the presents I made for my husbands 30th birthday, (here’s the first one in case you missed it).
This was one of the first things I made, it was very simply and quick to do, perfect if your new to embroidery. I simply embroidered 30 kisses onto some felt and framed it in a hoop. I used felt because it is super easy to stitch on and it doesn’t fray at all. You may also find it helpful to mark out the placement of your kisses first, as it is a very simple design it is easy to spot a mistake! so make sure the rows and columns are straight.
On the back I simply made a tiny label and stitched it on. I will be making a tutorial in the near future of how to frame embroidery pieces in hoops. Simply because it is a little more than just gluing the fabric in, as over time the fabric loosens it needs to be properly tightened with lots of stitches. So look out for that!
Again you could totally customise this, using whichever colours you want, you don’t even have to do a square grid it could be a circle, heart and shape, or even just randomly placed kisses!
