Family Trio Embroidery Hoops

I am still learning embroidery and am a complete newbie to it, but I saw something similar to this on my swap partner’s (@jillybeans) Pinterest and wanted to give it a shot.

Iused wash away ink to draw on the fabric first and embroidered over it. It was kind of tricky with the curves, but I think it turned out okay.
It has her and her husbands names with a + sign and a heart. This part was what was on her Pinterest. I decided to add her kids on there with = signs.
I used white fabric with silver glitter. You have to really zoom in to see it in a picture though.


I thought they turned out very sweet looking.
I hope she likes them, she said she did.
It makes me want to try more embroidery. I have tons of thread! Ha!
Oh, and I finished the backs with white felt with silver flecks too. Sorry, no pic.
