Home sweet home ;)
Here’s a fun DIY to make for a friend as a house warming gift! I made this one for my lovely friend Kim! We went up to Whistler the other weekend to visit and to see her new house and it’s totes amaze ;)
What you need to make this fun gift:
* embroidery ring…any size you like!
* embroidery thread
First cut fabric about 2 inches wider than the embroidery ring and now stretch the fabric on the ring.
Now write whatever message you want with chalk on the fabric and use this as a guide for when you stitch the letters! If you make a mistake you can always get a wet cloth and clean it off ;)
Thread your needle and knot the end…
Now start stitching beginning at the back…going to the front and making about a 1/4 inch length stitch! It’s totally up to you what kind of stitch you do…I recommend looking on the Martha Stewart site for different stitching patterns!
This took me about 1 hour to stitch!
Luna gets special privileges in the craft room..I usually don’t let her up on the furniture…but she was just so cute I had to let her cuddle!!
Knot the end and you’re done!!!
This is a very simple gift and very thoughtful and your friend will love it!! Kim did!! I’m going to try something else with the same idea…maybe use some printed fabric next time!???
Have a great Wednesday everyone!!!
