Applique Handprints

I actually saw this idea on pinterest, and have been wanting to do it for some while and this last couple of months I have had the best excuse. In March it was my Mum's birthday and in April it was my Mother in Law's birthday.  This was the perfect idea as a gift to them from the kids.  I framed these in embroidery hoops and it is the first time that I have done this and I am quite impressed with the results.
The first set were done back in March and I've been wanting to show them off ever since!!  .

The first two were left with bare frames and the date etc written on, whereas for the second lot I covered the hoops in ribbon. I can't decide which is my favourite way but they both look quite nice. 


  1. Oh I see what you mean about not being able to choose your favourite, they are both lovely in their own way. what a great idea.

  2. Great idea, I have an embaressing number of embroidery hoop, they make really lovely frames!

  3. Great job, sweetie. They look adorable and I know they'll be very much appreciated by both recipients.
