Hand Made Christmas: Embroidery

One of the least expensive things I have figured out to do with crafting is to embroider. I have a ton of books with have designs in them, but often what I end up doing is printing a saying or verse out on paper, laying scrap material over it and tracing it with a fine tipped pen. I then use the back stitch to line the words. After that I will flip through my books and find a design to decorate the saying. After this step I often will frame the design, but you could also add it to a pillow!

The above design was gifted to the friend who game me this quote at a time when I really needed to hear it. She loves pink, so pink accents were a must!

Here's why I love it:
1) I have a ton of scrap material, so this is a great way to use it up.
2) It's quick
3) It's cheap!
4) It's personalized both with words and colors
5) It's super easy

This is a saying I saw on facebook and pulled off. I think it would make a great addition to a home! :)
