  1. Describe your project

My project consisted of  canvas stitching for a model of my child.

  1. What knowledge did you already have about the project before you started?

I had done this project before when I was younger. I know that you have to stitch on an angle and you’re going to have to pull out plenty of yarn in order to accomplish pieces.

  1. What new skill did you want to learn coming into the project?

I learned that you can not be rough while pulling your yarn out. A lot of times I had knots with my yarn and this was because I was trying to make sure I had this project complete, so often times I was rushing and trying to move quickly.

  1. Did you accomplish this goal?

Yes, I accomplished this goal. I have a final and completed pretty project. I added her name as well.

  1. How do you know you accomplished the goal? If you didn't accomplish the goal, why do you think that is?
    I keep getting compliments on my projects, so I know I did something well. I myself, am proud with my work. I am happy and like what I have created.

  2. What other skill(s) did you learn along the way?
    I learned how to used the canvas as graph paper, because I wanted my bear to be symmetric on both sides. So, before I actually even started I had to label and use actually markings.

  3. What are you most proud of in this project?
    I am most proud of how the actually bear came out. I did the bear by freehand and it still came out well. I didn't expect it to which made the project come over even better.

  4. What would you do differently if you had to do the project over again?

I would probably make her name a little bigger. I would also have started a little earlier. It took a long time to make it.

I really thought this was cute because it's about someone who means the most to you, some I notice was that you put her name, Aubrey, down at the bottom signifying it was specifically for her. what made you think to do this? When I see this I think of the knitted pillows in my baby cousin's room, it so cuteee

I love this project because you created it for the love of your life. You're very talented! Would you ever want to go into actually making art for babies a business?

I can see the love you put into this creation, I once made a pillow with a heart on it for my sister when she was about to turn 16 there was a lot a love in that.
