A very good friend of mine moved away this weekend and I wanted to make her something as a reminder of her time here in Missouri.
I'm really not a mushy sort of person, so I wanted it to be fun and sort of quirky and maybe even a little random. I think I got it.
That's the shape of the state of Missouri, just in case it was a little too random for some of you.
I came up with the pattern on my own using a Google image of the state and some graph paper. I just laid the graph paper over the print out of the shape of Missouri and traced. To finish it, I painted a frame to match the grey Aida cloth I used. Since I decided to make this only about 3 days before she left, it was a quick project for me - maybe 6-8 hours of work?
While I am sad to see a friend move so far away, I am happy for her and this big change. Plus I made sure she had a weird, random gift to remember me by.
