i've been getting a lot of my inspiration from pinterest lately (and i'm pretty addicted to it). i've been eyeing this post from the mother lode, and decided to create my version of an embroidered family hands portrait!
i received some fabric scraps from one of my friends, and i used part of this cute ikea fabric and appliqued it to my base fabric.
|the house that i used is within the blue heart (source)|
to lighten the black outline within the hand prints, i applied a thin wash of white acrylic paint. i didn't want to completely lose the outline of the house.
then, i traced our hands and used different colored threads to represent each of us:
bry - navy blue
me - turquoise
dom - purple
solana - yellow
so, here's how it turned out:
i hope you are all having a wonderful week!
