Ellis documented the finished products. I was pretty impressed with his stitching and his photography.
The kids first drew pictures onto the cloth and then used embroidery floss and regular needles to stitch. Veida and McKenna stitched along the lines they'd drawn.
Quintana and Julia stitched a new drawing on top of their pencil lines for a layered look.
I'm a strong advocate of kids using real supplies in their art instead of kid-i-fied versions. They can handle almost as much as we give them, although I did thread all of the needles in advance.
