Since reading The Creative Family (by SouleMama), I’ve loved the idea of embroidering early childhood drawings onto fabric and preserving them in some way. A month or so ago, I saved a picture Lila drew (a picture of me!) and then embroidered it onto a piece of white cloth. Today I completed the project by sewing the embroidered picture onto a piece of denim (I left the edges to fray and even left the selvage edge intact … I like that unfinished look) and then sewing it onto some chenille that I made into a pillow cover. It’s a great accessory for the gameroom and a fun way to remember and enjoy Lila’s early drawings.
