Stitched States

Saturday, July 2, 2016

I was going to turn this into a layout and I tried, but the pictures were covering too much of the stitching so now I think it just needs to be framed and hung on the wall. Done and done!

DESCRIPTION: I promise this will be my last stitched heart ;) Now that the kids are older and more self-sufficient during long road trips, I find myself stitching more and more to pass the time! I made this on our trip to IKEA a couple weekends ago - it's supposed to take an hour to get there, which it did, but then on the way back we hit a major stau (traffic jam) and it took three hours... so happy I had this project to calm my nerves.

HOW TO: Download the states heart cut file and then use a pen or pencil in a Silhouette Cameo to draw it (instead of cutting it) onto patterned paper.
Pierce a hole around the states and then backstitch through, changing the color of thread for every state.

SUPPLIES: Patterned paper: Fancy Free by Paige Evans / Pink Paislee; Thread: DMC; Die cut machine: Silhouette Cameo; States heart cut file: Paige Evans

Happy 4th of July weekend and 240th birthday to the good ol' US of A!

  7. i have left you nice comments on your work several times and you never approve them. I tried again yesterday but although you approved lots of comments here and on instragm mine is not here. I really enjoy your work, you are very talented but I will not comment again because obviously It is just waste my time.

    1. Susan - I am so very sorry that I haven't seen your comments! I usually get emails to approve comments but I honestly haven't gotten yours and only saw them just now searching through blogger, pending in a place I'd never seen before. I didn't mean to offend and I truly do appreciate the time you take to write comments!!!
