Embroidered Fiber Art

Posted on

While on Pinterest a few weeks ago, I came across a pin that was really inspiring.  The idea for a project has been sitting in the back of my mind for a while.  Now that I am more settled into my apartment, I took some time to get creative once again.  I have an alcove in my main hallway that was begging for some color in the form of art.  I decided to try my hand at felt and embroidery to make some framed fiber art.  I am very happy to see the finished project hanging in the hallway – added that bit of color that was missing.
