bella's handprint

My mom really wanted a handprint of Bella. When she last came to visit, she spent a lot of time tracing Bella’s hand, along with Pete the Penguin’s wing and Puppy the Dog’s paw, of course. I traced one of those handprints onto some muslin and embroidered it. It turned out way cuter than I thought possible. I made one for my mother-in-law and hope to make one for myself.
