I did this embroidery freehand as a gift for some friends of mine who got married on the fourth of July.


It is about 5 inches in diameter, and I made the embroidery in that frame (it is rubbery fake wood from Michael's).

I love this! One of my favorite wedding gifts was a custom artwork made by my roommate, so I imagine your friends will cherish this forever.

The colors you used are AWESOME.
