Weekly DIY {week nine}

So I had this thought in my head to make a stitched canvas. I SWEAR I saw it on Pinterest but went back and researched and couldn't find it anywhere. Maybe it was in my messed up head, maybe it was some mixed together (perhaps back to this DIY) - either way here is my weekly DIY! 

Ya'll try it! It was a fun project. I bought an oval canvas at Joanns and had all the embroidery thread and buttons at home. Next I wrote Ivey's name on it in my messy writing - then stitched over it. It was easy to stitch through the canvas. I used a simple backstitch to "copy" over the lettering. Then I decided (of course) that it needed embellishments. So I added little x's in some of my favorite colors and chose buttons that matched. I think this would be a fun project for any nursery or kids room! Have fun with it and be sure to let me know if you make one, I would love to see your finished canvas.
