Craft Challenge #29 – Childhood Heroes
|Share the love...||
This month’s challenge was to think of one of your childhood hereos and craft up some sort of homage to that person using any craft techniques you desired.
The results of this challenge were amazing! From Rainbow Brite to Captain Planet, we saw lots of creativity in the entries.
The winner of this month’s challenge is I Sew Cute with her entry titled, “Childhood Treasures Preserved in Children’s Literary Hero Table…Dr. Seuss, etc”
I Sew Cute created this beautiful table representing Dr. Seuss & The Cat in the Hat, Maurice Sendak & Where the Wild Things Are, A. A. Milne & Winnie the Pooh, and Beatrix Potter & Peter Rabbit.

I Sew Cute is the winner of a copy of the beautiful embroidery book by Aimee Ray called Doodle Stitching: Fresh & Fun Embroidery for Beginners!
Asian-inspired lampshades embellished with flying fish. Canvas sneakers decorated with pink and white swirls. A pretty pillow adorned with a sleeping bunny, sweetly curled up. All it takes to create these appealing projects—or add charming embroidered touches in no time at all—are a few simple stitches, some easy techniques, and the nearly 30 projects in this book. Begin by learning several styles for outlining, filling, decorating, and appliqué. Find out about floss, fancy threads, fabrics, and needles. Get the scoop on hoops, and the lowdown on transferring your very own designs onto every type of fabric. The fresh ideas, witty patterns, and clever color illustrations take stitchers from novice to accomplished in a blink of the eye!
And last, but certainly not least, here are a few of my personal favorites entered in this challenge!
