This project was originally done by the ever brilliant ladies from A Beautiful Mess.
Here’s my original pin:
This was so much fun to create! I got to go through some wonderful memories until I picked an image that was just right.
Be sure the image you choose is either already black and white or use any editing software (Photoshop, GIMP, Photobucket, etc) to desaturate the original.
Print out your photo to the size you need.
Sketch your doodles first so you have a guide for the thread.
I used a couple different methods to “color in” my doodles.
I loved the use of burlap in the original, so I added a bit to mine too!
Oh I just love the way it turned out!
