this little project (for my mother-in-law..shhhh. don't tell!) is inspired by one of my favorite stitchers in all the land: kimberly over at chez~sucre~chez!
she has a wonderful shop full of goodies over at etsy and makes the sweetest and tidiest cross stitches i've ever seen.
i loved kimberly's *hand towel* with hand embroidered on it in red.
i did a simple version by tracing em's hand onto wool felt and then following that outline...all sewn up in light pink.
it was much easier to get a better trace by first using the felt. that way the dear linen didn't get all mussed up!
now go check out this girls shop!
