I really enjoy looking at the embroidery work of fellow creatives online and felt inspired to give stitching up some lettering. I found this kit on clearance for $5 and thought it would look great with a little modification… that means buttons will be involved!
I knew I was going to use completely different colors, and i knew some of my own die cut felt flowers would look great in place of the provided pieces in the kit.
It took me a long time to finish this. I primarily worked on it during my lunch break so it only got 10-15 minutes of my time per day.
I turned out just as well as I had hoped. The yellow frame was a perfect touch 🙂
Llama love is all around this season. Super trendy.
They are cute and fuzzy, but I stray away from anything bigger than a house cat. And also birds. Birds are the worst. The liquor store down the road from my house has about 5 llamas. They keep them outside in a field by the parking lot most of they year until it gets too cold. They also have a cat…. and a peacock.

My project features wool blend felt cut using Poppystamps Stitched Bloom Trio Dies along with Buttons Galore & More Berrylicious Color Blend buttons. Together with a 5″ wood embroidery hoop, a bit lace, and some glue, I put together this sweet little floral wall decor piece.
