My nine year old niece drew me a cute little tree and I wanted to embroider it.
I thought it would be fun to take her drawing, stitch it, frame it, and give it to her as a little gift.
Here is a photo of the original drawing.
Here it is transferred onto the fabric ready to stitch.
I used all stem stitch, since it's my favorite.
A long time ago I bought these little canvases with frames at a craft store which I thought would be perfect to finish the tree.
I stapled the fabric to the canvas (which I have written about previously here – it is my favorite way to finish my embroidery now).
Staple around all edges - pulling the fabric tight around the canvas.
Staple the corners - similiar to wrapping a present and staple.
Here it is all finished inside the frame and ready to send in the mail!
