Baby Shower WIP

We are having another baby boy born into our family and that means another baby shower! For this shower gift, I have what I hope will turn out to be a great idea :)   It involves this shadow box picture frame.  This is an 8" x 8" frame:


I am going to take this baby blue checkered fabric:


Transfer this "Sweet dreams" motif onto the fabric:


and stitch it up using a variety of my newly learned stitches in some or all of these colors:


Then I will add the backing and put it inside the shadow box and add some trim - either inside the shadow box - sort of framing it, or maybe tied around the outside? 


I will post some pictures of my progress and of course some pictures of the final result!
I have two pictures I took a few days ago in during our sunny weather. This is Berit:


and this is Rego.  I used a tennis ball as a distraction in each of these pictures so they would sit still -they don't like to take time for pictures!

Ciao Emi Grazie! Non dovrebbe portarmi a lungo per terminare. Questi due cuccioli sono così dolci!

I bet your plans will come out really nice :) This is such a creative plan!
I have been doing a bit of embroidery (just beginning to learn)- I thought to myself- you should create some sort of sampler pattern for all the cool stitches you've done tutorials on! Unless you already have one?
I love to see the special stitches incorporated into your projects :)
