WIP - Embriodery Drawings

I had an idea that I'd be able to turn children's basic line drawings into quilted pictures.

I cajoled a few of my crafty mates to send me pictures that their children had drawn - on the proviso that they could have the finished items - I don't think they realised what they were letting themselves into to!!

I stated on the first one this morning - it Santa Claus in his sleigh - and if I ever work out how to turn corners whilst sewing zig-zag stitch the results might be better. And a clear foot will be my next ESSENTIAL purchase

Here's the original -

And here's my interpretation so far (the reindeer and a few more parcels are still to be finished off)


  1. what a great idea, love it.

  2. Looks great, Leah!
    A clear foot..hmmm, I had always thought they'd be a great invention of mine if I could only make one. Dammit - they already exist, ha ha ha!!!

  3. Fantabulous ! What a great idea, so personal x

  4. what a clever idea - so far it looks great.
