project 7 of 33 : framed love letters.

Framed love letters was fun to do. A little time consuming because I am still a brand new sewer so it took me longer than the average sewer would've done. But it was fun!
Supplies needed:
- frame of your choice
- needle/thread
- design
- chalk or white pencil
- fabric
I used some of the kids chalk to draw the lines on the fabric. What would work a lot better is a white pencil but didn't have any on hand. Sometimes you have to use what you've got and make it work. Once I got the design plus initials on the fabric, it was time to thread it. This part was tricky. If you are a pro-sewer then this will be no problem. I know your thinking it's just hand stitching right? =)
Went with red thread for and I love the way it turned out. We have it sitting on our dresser in our room with the TV.

Like every project, you can stitch anything that appeals to you. Draw a flower on a piece of paper, and trace it onto some fabric and go to town. In case you can't read the initials it says KM + MB

Thanks for reading.
