So here’s the craft this week folks!
An easy, but time consuming piece. Frame it and it makes a cute addition to any wall! (Also an unique and personal gift idea)
The materials for this little number are CHEAP! and easy to find. Coloured felt sheets, a large needle, and embroidery thread. All these materials can be found at Dollarama. My one stop shop..
I wanted this project to be bright and fun, childish. Once I pick up a frame, It’ll be a permanent fixture in my 3 month old Nephew’s room. Lucky Carter?…
I decided on a bird after much debate, there were so many options! That’s one of the best things about this project. You have the liberty to give it exactly the feel you want. Could be seasonal, personal, or just simple! It doesn’t matter.
I found a picture of a bird online which I liked the shape of, I quickly sketched it out, then got snippin’.
Choose how much stitching you want to incorporate into this project accordingly. The more stitching you decide on, the more blood. sweat and tears you’ll put into this little number. The stitching portion of this project takes the majority of the time you’ll put into it.
I watched a few short videos on different stitch techniques, and then boom. The real fun began. In this craft I think the little details really make it work. Add something a little extra to a corner or two and see what happens.
You can always cut the thread if you’re not happy with the way it looks.
I got to try different stitch techniques, play around with colours, and add all the detail I felt (a pun, you get it?!) necessary.
Get creative and have fun!
