Well, not really.
My baby sister is having a baby. That so sounds like an After School Special. She might also yell at me for typing this.
My sister is having a baby (her second) and she asked me to make some wall art for the baby’s room. I had the crazy notion, once again, of busting out my wool sweater stash and going to town. It didn’t turn out quite the way I imagined, but nothing ever does. However, I am pleased with the results. Would you care to see?
First, let me explain what I’ve done, in case you can’t figure them out. I took three art canvases and painted them (erm, they were supposed to be light pink and light green. Haven’t a clue as to why they turned out peach and teal. Help, Sean?) Then, I cut out flowery petally thingies from the sweater and sewed them to the art canvas with embroidery floss, so the stitches would be big and glossy-like. Hence, the bleeding fingers. It is way hard to push a big fat needle through painted canvas. I eventually had to use pliers. I should have thought of that in the beginning, but a little torture is good for the soul.
Anyways, here they are.
And so you can get a feel for the size and scope of them, here is one of them all together. Try to ignore the fact they are propped up on my office chair.
