I’m struggling with my holidays this year… I totally forgot about Father’s Day and then convinced myself that it was earlier in the month – yeah a self-induced panic attack. So when I didn’t have anything for my sweetheart I had to get a little creative. This year he got something more handmade.
I got the idea from those creative folks over at Cart before the Horse (Dylan and Jo) and did a little cheater quilt of my own with my girls silhouettes. I painted on muslin and then used some old flannel blankets for the batting and jeans for the backing (seems to make it sturdy).
Each picture was transferred from a photo and a little black and white work in Adobe Photoshop. I did a pencil outline and then painted with charcoal gray. After painting the silhouette and frame I did some hand sewing to quilt all the layers together.
This was so fun and I loved the way it turned out so well that I’m planning a few more.
