Graduation Congratulations!

Recently, we had several family members graduate from high school or college.  While it may go without saying, I put it here for the record that we were proud of each and every one of them for their individual accomplishments.  Given my passions are sewing and embroidery, I wanted to give them something that was both personal and unique, that they might enjoy and cherish over the years. Graduation Congratulations! is the project that came to me late one night as I was lying in the dark, waiting for my mind to finally quiet for the day.  Isn’t that when all the best ideas come bubbling to the surface?

This project is designed for the 6x10 and larger hoops

Includes two appliqués and a long tassel sewn directly onto the design.

Finished project measures 216 x 256 mm (about 8 ½ x 10 inches),allowing it to fit inside a standard 11 x 14 inch picture frame.

Photographs shown here of some of the projects I have made are in 16 x 20 inch frames

The mat is 16 x 20 with 11 x 14 opening all purchased from my local Hobby Lobby store.
