Around a week ago I was in the kitchen putting dishes away and wishing Grandma's were able to have little hands helping them in their homes. So this was the inspiration for a Mother's Day Gift! I traced the kids hands on cardboard, then used that pattern to trace on a fusible paper which I fused to fabric. Then I cut each handprint out and fused to a tea towel. Sorry for the cruddy pics they were taken late one evening. I wish I had done step by step. Maybe next project! Anyhow the hearts I hand embroidered around and the hands I embroidered by machine.
I made homemade cards with a pattern seen on one pretty thing for the long thread, lovebirds. I didn't link since I'm not sure what is proper computer etiquette. But do want to credit the source. If you like and want to try the card just google it "the long thread lovebirds". I like that the card includes the kids art and looks nice.
