PINTEREST PROJECT: Embroidery Girls

I found this image on Pinterest and wanted to create an embroidery in a wooden loom using an old feed sack for material. 


I printed out the picture and placed it on the feed bag. (I initially tried using tracing paper but it wasn't transferring onto the fabric well. ). So I went ahead and just sewed right over the paper. 

Once most of the outline was completed I pulled/ripped the paper out. And then added more details and colors. 



The girls are adorable. 

Next I added a quote about friendships. (Also found on Pinterest with unknown author) 
 "Side by side or miles apart, dear friends are always close to the heart." 
It means a lot as many of my close friends live afar. 




Then trimmed the edges. And it is complete once I hang it on the wall. 
LOVE IT!

BURLAP ART: Gals of Spring

Mindy Lacefield is an artist I LOVE.
NEXT WEEK I GET TO SEE HER IN PERSON AND I'M ABSOLUTELY GIDDY. 
She posted a few of her paintings on burlap a while ago, so I decided to give it a try. 






I thought I was finished with her cuteness and only wanted to add some background details.


The start of a second girl. 
And then I got home...and things changed. 



Then I was told her eyes were a lil crazy by the recipient... Soo this happened. 


I like how the second girl is more rough and primitive so she is staying as is for a while. Until the answer comes to me on how to mold her into shape.

DIY: Flower Frame

Thanks to Junelle Jacobsen's flower idea...
I created this frame with flowers for Mrs. Mae who works as the maintenance person at my rec center. Always nervous about using my ideas as gifts for people. Hope she likes it. 

Love her to bits!

INSPIRED ARTIST: Day 4

And then it was time for good-byes, but with a twist.
We introduced ourselves!
(such a great way to start the day especially after last night's gatherings)
POPCORN!!!!!!

Everyone did manage to get some final touches to their art done and learn about stamping.
As well how to bind the book together.
I mean the learning never stopped....not to mention the food (a delicious brunch to send us on our way)












THANK YOU SO MUCH DONNA DOWNEY!!!
 FOR YOUR TIME, YOUR KNOWLEDGE, AND YOUR HE(ART).
