Enlist your artist of choice to write something onto your fabric.
Begin embroidering. I used a back stitch for the letters.
To back stitch bring your needle and thread up through the back of the fabric. I started at the top of the L. Sew a long stitch forward, bring your needle down. Return your needle back up, leaving space, approximately the same size as your first stitch. Return your needle back down, where your first completely stitch ended. Repeat.
At the end of love, I decided to punctuated it with a heart.
Love should always come from the heart.
Love was the first word Grace learned to spell.
Love is what this sweet child of mine shows me every single day.
Love, written by a 5 year old, will be a keepsake I hold dear for always.
