Hope for the Flowers

Another project completed!
 I've mentioned this book before, Hope for the Flowers, I just love it! 
I embroidered a few pages from the book - tada! 

I painted the actual beige fabric with a yellow and water mix.
Then I painted the hoop black. I've decided I love the hoops being painted, not just the bare wood.
I made copies of the book's pages I wanted to use, and then traced them right on to the fabric.
I love tracing paper now!!
Try to find this book! And share it with someone you care about!
I have a few more projects to share :) but not til tomorrow!
Pin It

Wow! I was just searching Hope for the Flowers images and came across your blog. This is an amazing project ~ I love it! I work with Hope for the Flowers' author, Trina Paulus and am going to share this with her and on our facebook page. We are working on a new project to try to transform the book into an animated film with the help of all those that love it ~ looks like you do from all the time you put into this project. We'd love to have you on the team. Check out this link for the details:
