Thank you!  Kiss It was a fun challenge and I plan to do more of this nature.  My only complaint is the colors don't print brightly enough on the fabric.  Not sure what to do about that.....

I think the fabric image being more subtle makes it feel more vintage while your exquisite embroidery adds a fresher look...a nice blend!

I do hope you do more...this is fabulous!

Thank you!  I think if I fuss with the printer a little I can get the colors closer to the original, and if they're muted, as you say, that helps make it look vintage - good way to look at it.  Smiley

I'm still planning to do something - I know what - but we don't get home until late on the 25th so I'll have to get to it right away.

That is amazing Ludi! Jealous of your skills!

I finished my alteration too. Smallest hoop I have done so far.

The original fabric:


I added some green fabric for grass, turned the bee into a cloud, painted toenails, added some bead and french knot flowers, and googly eye. And of course my required song lyrics: One elephant went out to play.


So size comparison:

Ahhh that is SO cute!  I have a bit of that fabric too but wouldn't have thought to do something like that.
