Embroidered family hands


A project that has been in the works, completed and ready to share - our family hands, embroidered. I traced each family member's hand onto fabric using a disappearing ink pen and embroidered each in a different color. My preschooler who embroiders now too assisted with the stitching on this project - she did nearly all of her hand, and a small portion of her baby brother's. This makes my heart very happy.

I'm sharing this project on these great blogs this week.

  4. That is adorable!! I did something similar, but with paints. I like this idea better so that you can really see everyone's hand outline.

  6. OMG this is the coolest thing EVER! :) I have a drawing of my daughter's hand with my parents' hands just like this that they just traced with a marker one day, and I totally want to make it into a piece of art like yours. It's beautiful!

  15. Hi! I love this idea. I did something similar where I took fabric cut outs...but I like the "transparency" the embroidery offers. I found your blog via the tagalong and am definitely following.

    Please stop by my blog and follow if you like.

    Thanks!

  38. You are a brave woman using disappearing ink. I did an ornament with just my toddler's handprint and her's disappeared before I could get done. LOL! I had to trace her hand again and make a template. I like how this one includes everyone in the family, great keepsake. Thank you for joining us at A Crafty Soiree!\
