Did you guys see this post by Fraufertig over at Made awhile back? As soon as I saw it I knew that I wanted to make it. My daughter, Alpha's, room is decorated in a somewhat mid-century modern type of way. As a result it has been really hard to find artwork for her nursery that is modern enough for the decor, but still young enough for a baby. I thought this was perfect. At about $3 total and maybe 2 hours of work I couldn't be happier.

Do you want to make one too? Click here for the tutorial.

p.s. if you decide to make one too here are a few hints - First make sure to use a dark thread. We started with red and it wasn't dark enough to really make out the letters. Secondly, most home improvement stores have a free wood pile by the cutting table. We found ours there for free.


  1. Thanks for the link, it looks like something I can definitely find a place for.

  2. Excellent! Your thread art looks really really good.

    Greeting from overseas and congratulation to your different simplicity 2599 designs, too. They look awesome!

  3. Thanks for providing the link here. This is actually very creative. I'm going to try it too. This isn't just cheap it's tasteful too! :D
