Deer Me

The Birdhouse Collection

My sister Cath gave me this gorgeous handmade card for my birthday from The Birdhouse Collection.  I loved the deer on the front and I instantly envisioned a craft project!

After a trip to Spotlight with James asleep in the pram, I picked up an Embroidery Hoop and tried to find the perfect fabric to showcase the deer. Just as I was entering the patchwork collections, my little man had other ideas and decided to wake.  I couldn’t concentrate on trawling through the many fabrics, so I retreated home with my hoop.

I found some red and white spotty fabric in my sewing cupboard and ta dah … this is what I created:

What do you think of the spots?  I am not 100% convinced as I’m not sure the fabric provides enough contrast to showcase the deer??  I might have to revisit Spotlight!
