Part of what I created this weekend. I sure did enjoy the process!

wooden embroidery hoop (7 inches). I got mine off ebay super cheap.
canvas (from the fabric store)
fabric scraps
Mod Podge
embroidery floss
some great stamps: Wingin’ It, Passion for Polka, Verbose and Smooch                        (Technique Tuesday)
chipboard letters
permanent black dye ink
coordinating coloured dye ink
paint (if needed) to paint chipboard to match

Check out the slideshow. Sorry it’s so quick. They won’t let me change the speed. You can always stop it if you need a closer look 🙂 Thanks for coming!
