You've seen these embroidered hand prints all over the bloggy world, right?
The hardest part was tracing my 3 1/2 year old's hand. The second hardest part was finding my embroidery floss in the basement craft closet. I've had this stuff since I was in 5th grade, when I first got into counted cross stitch. I don't really do that anymore since I've taken up sewing, but of course I could never get rid of the floss!
I did go out and buy a water soluble pencil for marking the hand prints onto my fabric, as well as two small hoops. The white fabric and ribbon was an old curtain from my stash. I think they turned out pretty well if I do say so myself. (Did I mention this was my first try at embroidery?)
