Title: Magical creatures wall art, a collaboration with my 9 year old.
Post by: craftylittlemonkey on September 11, 2016 03:38:38 PM
One of the kids likes making pictures with bits out of the scrap fabric bin. I posted some of them in the destash thread and she went over the moon when ErinAquaheart saw them and asked if she'd like to swap. Her parcel's been received so I can post what she sent.

She makes up the pictures and I zigzag stitch them onto the background fabric.
She approved the banner fabric and design and did the beaded fringe detail herself with a bit of help from me. I think she's amazing.

Love sweet pea's designs. She has a great eye for color and composition. Hard to remember how young she is because her skills far surpass what I would expect from someone her age.

Aw, thanks :). We looked at a lot of images online for inspiration but she did all the design work herself with just a bit of advice from me. She's so creative.

I love the pattern on pattern! Very well done.

I hope she remembers her first commission for a long time.

Hey, I forgot all about this unicorn project. I have a bunch of her other art pages we were compiling into book form, I should finish that project...
