cross-stitch portraits

just wanted to share a little project i did over the holidays.

i decided to make handmade presents for our family members.  inspired by martha stewart's cross-stitched portraits, i decided to create versions of my family members.

so, here they are:

below is a photo of my designs and martha stewart's templates.  i find, that the most exciting part of the project is designing and creating the templates.

i'm currently working on one with the whole family, starting with mine:

the finished portrait would probably be 5 inches by 24-30 inches...  i can't wait to show you!  i will also create a background & custom frame it.

i hope you enjoyed them!
xo, carla
