Then I transferred the concept that I had on paper to fabric.
|The fabric has embossed diamonds, the 60th wedding anniversary is known as the diamond anniversary. I had to look it up, so I thought I'd share that little tidbit ;)|
|Whew, got all the names outlined. . . now what????|
|Oh yeah, going with that :) Making the trunk look like a tree wasn't quite as difficult as I had imagined and it didn't take quite as long as I had imagined to do it - double bonus!|
|Half way there!!|
|It might be awhile before I quilt leaves on a quilt again ;) Picture taken by my friend Loretta.|
|The label. I wasn't impressed by the pens that are 'supposed' to be used on fabric. It seemed like it was running out of ink from the very beginning. Picture taken by my friend Loretta :)|
|I think he's in shock too! LOL This picture was taken after he had closed his mouth, which had been hanging open, a little! :)|
|Getting a closer look at the mark they have left on the world :)|
|Yup, I think they like it :)|
|OK, that wasn't so painful ;)|
