Christmas cushions are nearing completion

I've finished the embroidery for my christmas cushions. If you look back at a previous post of mine here I showed the drawings that I was going to copy (using a transfer pencil) and then embroider. The idea being that I will sew them into little cushions for the kids for christmas gifts. I also decided I wanted one for myself. So I have chosen a recent drawing that Lucy did of our family and embroidered it also.
The family
A closeup of Mum and Dad
The embroidery I did of Olivers drawing
This is the original drawing
The embroidery I did of Lucys drawing
This is the original drawing
So the next step is to make them into little miniature cushions and wrap them ready for christmas.
I will post pics when they are done.

These are fantastic! I love the way you have 'coloured in' the clothing! I might have to try that.

I wish I could say I have completed some of my handmade presents!

I love these. I did something very similar on a shirt for my son after my daughter draw a picture of him. It is so precious. Great idea.
