Colouring

I just had to try it..

Well you see my GD drew this cute picture the other day. I have been busy making Mug Rugs, like everyone else I see when a light bulb went off. Ok maybe not a light bulb but if you go over to see Carol you will get the picture..


So I pulled out my crayons, but first I transferred her picture onto fabric and then ironed on freezer paper for stability. Then I started colouring. Of course I had to add two birds. I told you that I can't draw haven't I. My kids used to laugh when I helped them with their projects in school.. .


So here I go, coloured, ironed then outlined stitched then quilted. Of course I added on the binding. This is going to be a cute Mug Rug for my daughter. She will have something to treasure that her daughter drew. How is your day going?..

until next time,

Linda

  8. What a great idea! I made some quilts with my children's art when they were younger and I'm so glad that I did! Your daughter will keep that forever. I have done some quilts with my sons' handprints that I will keep always too!
