Stitchery Time!

Hello, my friends!

I'm back today to show you my newest stitchery. This time I used an adorable teddy bear image from StampArt Design by Kathryne called "Little Bear Ready For Bed". You can find it at Whimsy Stamps HERE. I've previously made a card with this sweet image. which you can see HERE.

Just like my last stitchery project. The design is stitched on muslin using DMC embroidery thread. The eyes and nose are outlined in black and then painted. I added some blush to their cheeks and ears. Again, I framed my finished piece with rick rack and fabric from my stash and turned it into a little quilted wall hanging. I added a few buttons and a ribbon bow! The finished piece measures 12" x 15". 

This lovely image is just perfect for a stitching project! Wouldn't it make a cute baby sampler? The name/date/weight of a newborn could easily be stitched under the teddy bears!  



Here's a bit of a closer view of the stitching:



Thanks for looking! I hope you're all having a joyful week! :o)

Nancy, this is absolutely precious! It totally brings back memories of the quilt my mom and Grandma stitched for me when I was small! I just knew I was wrapped in love when I slept with it knowing all the hard work they had put into it! You've created such an awesome project! Well done!

This is just soooooo cute! I'm jealous! Your stitching is perfectly straight and even. I get in too much of a hurry and split my stitches and make them uneven. This is totally delightful.

Love you - Leslie
