Nursery Series - 7 Surname Embroidery Ring

I think this must be one of my favourite pieces for the baby's nursery. I would have liked to have completed this project with the baby's name but obviously we don't know the gender or the name!

I might update this one when the baby arrives and I would like to add some of the gender specific touches. 

Put simply I traced the inside space of the embroidery ring onto a plain piece of paper to give me an idea of size. 

I sketched out the writing so that I knew I could cut out letters that would look good and fit in with the size of the frame. 

I cut them out of the paper.

 Then pinned them to felt and chopped them up as well.

Once I had my letters I tacked them to the fabric using a contrasting colour, just to make it look more interesting again.  

I pinned each letter in place to make sure I liked how it looked.

Ta Daaa, Like I said I really like this piece. :)
