I've been working on this since I saw an episode of Game of Thrones where they were talking about stitching the different house mottos.
"We do not sow"... change one letter, and it becomes adorably ironic. Pair that phrase with my subpar sewing abilities, and I think that it looks pretty good!
Because really, I don't sew. My grandma taught me how to sew when I was little (before I learned how to knit) and I ended up sewing most of what I tried to sew to my pants leg. My dad has a few things that my grandma urged me to make - a needlepoint of some girl holding a present, a cross stitch of a cat. I even have a pretty epic pillow that I made when I was in the third grade, but mixed up most of the colors. It looks pretty wild and crazy.
Anyway, I don't sew. But sometimes I get the urge to sew, and lately it's been hitting me. Lots of blogs have been posting cute needlepoint kits, and I've been looking at this kit on etsy almost every day... but not buying it, because money's tight and maybe I'll wait until I get Christmas money or whatever. You know.
So when I got the urge, I just sort of did it. I sketched out the image of what I wanted first, so that I could make sure it was symmetrical. Then I used transfer paper to put it on the fabric, and just followed it with thread. Here's a photo of the drawing in case someone wanted to print it out and do it themselves.
