I can't seem to get enough of hand embroidered wall art lately. When I saw THIS PIN a few months ago, I knew I wanted to make something similar for Finn's room. I used it as inspiration but I also changed and added a few rules of my own.
The last rule is totally me… it says "always call your mom". This is my biggest fear of having two boys, I hope they don't turn 18, say bye mom thanks for everything, I'm off to find a new girl then call once every few months. Maybe if I start brainwashing them now they will call me
I used iron on vinyl for the small letters but hand embroidered the rest. I printed out a template for the embroidery and then just used a pencil and traced to give myself a guide.
I also traced a border around the outside with pencil.
Then I started to embroider. I find it very relaxing for some reason… I like to sit in bed and do it while I watch TV… Geez how old am I? My husband calls me the youngest old person he knows.
Lastly, I ironed on my vinyl.
I love how it turned out. So far this makes one thing to hang on poor Finn's walls haha.
So do you have any rules to add? I live in Texas y'all, I have to raise gentlemen. Also, does anyone else have sons and want to weigh in on how often they call? Go easy on me :/Also, I entered this into the Borderline Brilliant Contest, so PRETTY PLEASE vote for me, #14
