Make My Week #46 - Hoop Birth Record

I first saw this neat embroidery on Cat's blog here

and when I saw her last month I asked if I could copy it - I kind of free-handed it rather than properly followed because, well you know how I roll :o) (unless you are new in which case I'm not much of a pattern follower)

I have made this for my brand new beautiful niece and seeing as she is unlikely to see or remember this post I thought I'd debut it here.

My niece lives in London so this also has the advantage of being very light to send.

What things do you make that are light to send internationally?

Oooh, this is cute! I have done one of these for a friend's new baby, but I did bunting rather than a little picture. It's such a great idea for a present for a new baby: creative, original and cheap!

I'm going to Pin it as a reminder!
