My daughter loves to draw. It's a normal part of her every day. When she showed me this simple kitten it just made sense to make it into a wall hanging.
We started by scanning and blowing up her original sketch. The Small One chose fabric and I went to town using a combination of reverse applique and whole-cloth applique
After the major details were down my daughter drew all the smaller features back onto the face and I followed her lines with thread.
I like using a darning foot with a zig zag stitch while stitching left to right to make thick lines easily.
We are both very pleased with the result.
