Give me an "M", Give me the Moon

Way back in Sept of 2021, the US Post Office returned a package to @mellybelly81 in Australia that I had sent in the Scavenger Hunt Swap. I finally was able to mail it about two weeks ago. Now that she has received, I can post this embroidery I did for her (7 months after I made it!).

This was to make something with the letter “M”.

I found one of those sample prints (Thanks to @Camelama who got me addicted to them!) and knew I could embellish the heck out of it. Such an enjoyable project to do while streaming!

On the Spoonflower site, if you type in “embroidery” in the search button, a bunch of panels with round prints come up. If you pick the “swatch” amount, it is perfect to fit into an 6-10 inch hoop. You can embellish as little or as much as you want!

I have done eight of them and have another dozen or so in my stash…they are $5 not on sale but sometimes they go on BOGO!

These embellished pieces are so much fun! I’ve got one sitting in my stash from the last time I hit a Spoonflower sale, and this really makes me want to try it.

And how great that the postal service finally let you get this to its intended recipient! :package:
