Anniversary Gift


I know this isn't St. Patrick's Day related but I wanted to share a gift I made for some friends celebrating their anniversary this weekend.  They have kids the same ages as ours (except multiply my 8 month old by 2! Yeah that means twins!).  So when I found this printable over at Inspired by Charm I thought it was the perfect thing for them!
I printed it on thicker paper (I cut it out of an art tablet that I've had since high school). 


Then sewed on the cool little rooster which came from a remnant of Alexander Henry's Farmdale Crossing. Yeah I sewed it to paper- it worked just fine.  I like the detail that the stitching adds!


Love this fabric!

Here's a closer view of the print- sorry about the glare from the glass!



Happy St. Patty's Day!  I can't wait to eat some corned beef!
