embroidered photo {diy}

May 20, 2014

I have to say it right now…this project has been on my to-do list for over a year…ever since I saw this awesome Stitched Photo Art Project on A Beautiful Mess.  As soon as I saw it I knew  I wanted something so fabulous and handmade on my walls too!  I even went so far to print the pictures I wanted to stitch.  Then there it sat for a year.

I finally finished it!  Now, I don’t consider myself the embroidering type.  I love the look of it, the possibilities, and the genuinely handmade, vintage-y feel of it but I feel like I just don’t know what I am doing well enough to conquer a real embroidery project.  This, I feel, is manageable.

I printed a simple black and white photo of some flowers I had in the house.  Then stitched here, and there, until I got the look I was hoping for.  Started with blue, added some pink, and ended up really wanting some purple in there too to match my violets.  Pretty basic, right!?!?

I do have another print all set for stitching too…I am just not sure how I am going to work it yet because it is in color.  Hmmm…

I love my new handmade art though.  This is such a fun twist on using photography in home decor!  What would you stitch?
