We've seen a lot of adorable canvases made for children: Winnie the Pooh, Beatrix Potter, booties, tooth fairy pillows, baby sleeping signs, and many more. The great thing about stitching all of these designs is that you can add your own flair to them, whether it's a fun thread or stitch, to how you finish it.
Last spring one of our customers had us finish a really special
Soie D'alger, so that is a definite option for stitching, but you could easily use a non-strandable thread like Pepper Pot Silk, Impressions, Vineyard Silk, or many others!
Another cute project came in our Princess & Me trunk show this
"Sweet Pea" ornament. The great thing about Princess & Me is that their designs are all really sweet, and they all come with stitch guides and pictures of how they look finished! This really helps if you don't know what stitches would look good with that piece. It really takes all the guess work out of it and helps you really enjoy the project.
One of my favorite Disney movies as a child was Alice in Wonderland.
One piece that we all like a lot is this Bear Birthday Party scene by
Cooper Oaks. It really is begging for special threads. Perhaps something fuzzy like Peluche for the bears' fur, ribbons for the streamers, something shiny for the different patterns of gift wrap. Use your imagination and this piece could really pop (even more than it already does!).
There are a lot of choices when it comes to stitching something for a child. These are just a few of the really great ones we have in stock. If there's not a link to the website for any of the canvases above, get in touch with us at the shop. We'll be happy to give you some more info about that particular piece.
