Sewing arty canvas thing - handmade Thursday

While browsing around a local craft centre with a friend I saw some embroidery / applique art mounted on canvas and selling for £100.

Well, mine cost £2.24, plus bits and pieces from my button and scrap stash.

I wanted to make a "family" piece, something which celebrated the five of us.

When I'd sewn all the pieces together I simply used my glue gun to stick it onto the canvas.
And I'm really rather happy with it :)

More handmade thursdays at White Lily Green.


  1. That is truly beautiful! What a lovely idea. Think you could certainly make some of those as custom orders, could even see if you could get away with selling them for £100!!

  2. I think if anyone wanted one I would undercut the craft centre by a couple of quid!!

  3. That's beautiful, what a good idea! xxx

  4. Love it, such a simple idea and beautifully done.

  5. That is just amazing! Wow! I agree, you could sell those for a nice price!!

    Thank you for linking up to #handmadethursday

  6. This is an amazing idea! I hope it's ok that I 'pinned' it... just let me know if not and I'll take it down! Claire xx

  7. Lovely! And much more satisfying than buying one!
