How to turn kids artwork into an embroidered ornament
If you’re looking for creative ways to make gifts out of children’s artwork, this is a tutorial for how to turn kids artwork into an embroidered ornament! Kids could embroider their own drawing as well or just help as they were interested; see my general tips for teaching kids to embroider in this post. This is such a sweet keepsake to remember one of my daughter’s first more detailed drawings, and she was deleted to see her artwork in hand embroidered form! I did receive the supplies for free through a series of sponsored posts with Sulky, but this post is all on my own.
This is a turtle, if you can’t tell! Not entirely sure what that top piece is, but she is very proud of her rendering. She did protest that she wanted a stuffie version to sleep with as well, so I might be making this all over again, sans hanging loop.
I took a little artistic license with the colors to make it more Christmas-y; you could go wild with color choices and decorative stitches.
I added her name (photoshopped out) and the year, I know the years will pass quickly and I’ll forget what year she made this sweet drawing. The process to make this DIY sentimental ornament is super easy, anyone could do it!
