Since moving away for college 7 years ago I've moved 10 times. As far as places I've lived, I started in Kansas moved to Ohio, had a short stint in North Dakota, spent a semester in Austria, moved back to Ohio then to New York and finally, back to Kansas.
For Father's Day (yes. 4-months-ago) I wanted to commemorate the different places we've lived together with a little homemade love.
Which is why I created these little embroidered states using: card stock, an embroidery needle, and thread. To create the holes i placed a cork board underneath the card stock while using one of my thicker embroidery needles and a small hammer around the state outlines I had drawn.
In total the project took under an hour. I'm still debating on adding the years we lived in each place. I like them the way they are and am afraid of ruining them!
Even if you haven't moved a lot, how cute would it be to have a wall of places you've traveled?
