So since some of my dear friends are getting married soon, I’ve been able to practice shooting couples by doing a few engagement sessions! These were the first ones I’ve ever done, so it was a great learning experience. Excited to keep developing my photo skills!
Jessica + Richard
Melissa + Tyler
Ashlyn + Alex
Can’t wait to see these great, God-honoring couples tie the knot – and I’m so pumped that I get to stand up in two of the weddings!
1 John 4:11 – Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
Today I’m finally kicking off the “projects” part of my blog. Yay!
As an avid artist, crafter and Pinterest enthusiast, I just love taking stuff I already have and making it special. Revamping and reusing stuff is such a great way to reflect our Creator, be good stewards of the earth and save money! Yessss. Great combo. Today’s project was inspired by a photo I saw on Pinterest, and although I haven’t embroidered much ever, I decided to give it a shot.
DIY Embroidered Campfire Sweatshirt
What you’ll need:
- Solid-colored sweatshirt – (I bought mine at Goodwill last summer while working at camp for chilly nights at campfire)
- Embroidery floss in coordinating colors
- Tapestry needle
- Old shirt (mine had a cute inside collar, which I used as the edge of the pocket)
Cut around the collar of the sweatshirt to loosen up the neckline. Begin neckline embroidery using the picture as a reference. If it’s not perfect, it’s okay. Use different stitches and overlap a few.
Cut the pocket shape bigger than you want it to be in the shape you want, using the collar of the shirt as the top part. Embroider across the pocket with a few different colors first, and then fold the sides in and pin it where you want it on the sweatshirt. Secure it down with a basic running stitch. Rock the sweatshirt.
Perfect for summer nights and cooler fall weather! Enjoy!
