Embroidered Portrait of My Cats

Embroidered Portrait of My Cats
This is the surprise from the last Sneak Peek post.

   I've been trying to take cute pictures of my two cats interacting, but they refuse to pose for me. The solution? I decided to embroider a portrait of my cats that shows them in a very typical scene. The tabby in the foreground is Mia. In the background, you see Magia getting ready to pounce and scare Mia.

   I embroidered most of the portrait and then thought of painting it somehow to get more color and make the details of their coats more noticeable. I thought of using acrylic paint, then fabric markers and then it hit me, why not use crayons? I researched a little bit about fabric crayons but didn't find anything conclusive so I decided to give it a try with regular crayons. I used Crayola and I love how it turned out. Would anyone like to see a tutorial of how I did this?

   I originally thought of making these custom for anyone interested and available for sale at my shop but it's been hard to find the supplies I need locally. I also wanted to get some feedback before I attempt to sell them, so... What do you think?

    1. We'll see how it goes with the feedback and I'll think about it a little more thoroughly. I loved making it but the supplies are a little scarce in here. I need to make your cupcakes BTW!
