Embroidery/cross stitch of my daughter in her big scarf:


Backstory:I spend way too much time looking through pinterest for crafty inspiration and way too little time actually crafting.  However, sometimes "pinspiration" happens at just the right time for actual craft motivation!

So, I found these fantastic needlework/illustration pieces by Izziyana Suhaimi (blog post: http://elblogdedmc.blogspot.com/2012/01/izziyana-suhaimi-ilustraciones-con.html) and in particular, this one:
https://www.pinterest.com/pin/275564070928039298/

So, pinned for future reference...

Not 3 days later, my mom emails me this picture of my daughter from Christmas

Random coincidence or fate?  Either way, it must be made!



I outlined the main parts of the photo with sharpie.  Then I traced the scarf part onto 14 count Aida and cross stitched the scarf.  I was going to use one of those cross stitch chart programs, but then I decided to just wing it.  Once the scarf was done, I cut it out and put some glue around the edges from the back to prevent fraying.  Then I traced the rest of the picture onto plain fabric and just used straight stitches for the outline.  Glasses are of black felt.  Tacked the glasses in place then tacked on the scarf.

I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out Smiley

Looking for a vintage magazine (1974 - 1978) that has a fabric nativity set w/ people and animals. An example: http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=440861&ppuser=143144.

Very trendy! Think I prefer the variety of colors, textures, and materials you used though. It creates a more interesting effect than most of the pieces the other artist created.
