He's been your biggest fan, your pal, your hero, and more. Show Dad what he's meant to you all these years. With a shadow box, an old shirt, a photo, and some embroidering, you can make a keepsake he'll treasure for years to come. And the fact that you've made it by hand will mean all the more to him.
This project requires minimal sewing (one straight seam only), some skillful gluing, a flair for embellishing, and knowledge of basic embroidery stitches. Please download my free eBook, Stitching Essentials, available through You Can Quilt This and You Can Make This for reference and instructions for these stitches if needed.
