The Simpsons Embroidery


Over the holiday season I went to a white elephant exchange party, and the day of I still didn’t have a gift to bring. In a scramble my friend Lauren and I decided to go in on a gift together.

We came up with this:
Homer Simpson and his two favorite things: beer and donuts. We split it up and Lauren did the beer can hoop and I did the homer hoop.

We were both pretty happy with the turnout, and now all I can think is I need to make some more Simpson pieces.

    D’oh! I’ve never thought of colouring cloth with crayons before. Were they a specific brand?
