This is a Silhouette project that can be done even if you DON'T own a machine. All you have to do is download the Silhouette Studio software and purchase a .99 cent image online. You can use the images in your library for anything and they can be printed from your computer.
I have used this bird on a branch image before because I just really love it. I put it on a blank page in my Silhouette Studio. I sized it down a little in order to fit into a 5x7 frame.
I used spray adhesive to adhere a piece of white fabric to cardstock and sent it through my printer. Erin was the one to first show us the fabric printing trick. I used it in this post and here I go again.
Now I had my image outline on my fabric. I used my embroidery needle and black embroidery floss and began stitching away on the line.
Hand stitching takes awhile, of course but it is so worth it. By the time I was finished, it was dark and late so I didn't get any super great pictures of the finished product.
I stuck my little birdie in a black frame and added it to the wall.
It was super fun to do and I love the look. This will most likely become my new obsession so friends and family beware. You could see something similiar under your Christmas tree.
I want to do a pumpkin now for fall and a tree for Christmas. I also need to get some colorful thread and have all kinds of fun with this little craft.
If you haven't already, give it a try. Anyone can do it and the possibilities are endless! : )
Thanks for stopping by!
