Here is a little embroidery piece I designed for a large church activity years ago. To mass produce I sewed parallel strips of red toned fabrics together, then cut perpendicular pieces. I sewed the finished strips onto hand dyed pieces of muslin (I dye my fabric with cocoa powder). Using Microsoft Word, I designed my fonts, printed them off, then traced them onto the fabric using a disappearing pen and a lit window. I embroidered over the pen marks with two strands of embroidery floss. To finish it off I added a strip of ribbon which separated the red toned section from the muslin. I pulled the finished ironed piece over cardboard and taped the sides. *Make sure you cut the cardboard a little smaller then the frame size as the bulk of the fabric will take up more space than a picture would.
This project is super fast and extremely inexpensive depending on the cost of your frame. It could also serve as a fun Valentines gift for a girlfriend...or guy?!
