I had a scrap of wrapping paper the other night and I really love the doodled look of the designs on it.  I felt inspired and experimental and I wanted to try embroidery so I found a scrap of canvas-y material and drew a similar snowman to the one on the wrapping paper.  Then I outlined it in backstitch.  It was a quick little thing.

Now I'm not sure what to do with it!  I think it's the right size for an ATC but I've never made one with fabric before--not sure how to attach this or what else to do with it!  Any thoughts?

So cute, good job  Grin  Perhaps use it as a patch or something?

Thanks!  I'm not sure how to turn it into a patch or what to put it on...

I have to think outside my papercrafting box (my main hobby)--I keep thinking in terms of a card of some kind (ATC or a "happy winter" sort of January card to send out...!

Thanks for replying!
Colleen, planning my next embroidery attempt

It's a cute snowman.

It would make a great card or ATC. Maybe you could embellish it with sparkly snowflakes. Or stitch it to a kitchen towel to use (or decorate with) this winter.
