There are only so many paintings done by your kids that you can hang on your wall and for all the creative energy that goes into each piece, I often wish these masterpieces were on something a little more special than butchers paper.
Etsy crafter Stray Notions translates the drawings and paintings of children into finely embroidered canvas tote bags. Using a digital image of the original artwork, Stray Notions recreates the masterpiece with a combination of embroidery and appliqué. The bags are then lined with another layer of canvas to protect the embroidery.
I think this is a fantastic and useful way to preserve those gems that deserve more than a spot on the fridge! Prices vary depending on the piece, so contact Stray Notions directly with your ideas.
