The welcome mat is a front porch staple, but there is something charming about this embroidered welcome screen made by freelance artist/crafter Abbey Hendrickson of the blog Aesthetic Outburst.
Here's what Abby has to say about the project:
We have an old-timey front door, the kind where you put the screen in for summer and replace it with glass in the winter. The screen we have is pretty beat-up, so I wasn't going to lose any sleep if I ruined it even more by cross-stitching the word "hello" on it. Here's my advice if you want to embroider a screen...make sure it pops out of the window or door so you can hold it, make the letters bigger than you think they should be, use a needle with a small eye, and sew neatly on the front and back. Luckily, the screen material is already a grid, so laying out a pattern shouldn't be an issue. This foray into screen-embroidering has inspired me to buy a *new* screen and embroider an even bigger message/pattern.
