Hi all,

I embroidered this for my sister who is mom to an autistic child, but I am struggling to figure out how to finish it out for her.



I thought of sewing it on a bag, but I think the white would get filthy too quickly if it got toted around.  The bright colors don't really work with her decor for wall art. 

I'm just stumped right now and would love any suggestions anyone can think of.

Such a thoughtful gift, and so well done.

Does she have an office? Maybe make it a wall hanging for her work area? A book cover? As long as the fabric is washable you really could make it into most any useful bag. Smiley

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I love the pillow idea. What about a pretty frame or maybe a totebag?

So I've decided it will be a bag.  I'll be sure to put up the finished product when I'm done.

Thanks Folks!

Few extra ones with metal strong string, to add some volume.
