Sewing With Kids: Cross-Stitched Portrait Gift

My oldest daughter, "E" has been learning how to cross-stitch.
She really enjoys it and likes to sit with it as a way to unwind.
She also enjoys knitting but that's something she does on her own because I don't know how to knit!
she added a rainbow and completed her whole name.
Last year, she wanted to make something special for her best friend's 9th birthday present.
We saw these cute cross-stitched portraits in an old Martha Stewart magazine
and it was love at first site for "E."
She started by sketching out her design on graph paper and making a pattern.
Then, she spent several afternoons working carefully on this darling portrait.
I love the addition of the rainbow and the buttons.
Her very special BFF has it hanging in a place of honor in her room.
She has taken a break from cross-stitch work lately to concentrate on her knitting.
I'm hoping I can get her to get back into making her adorable samplers again soon.
I'm thinking a family portrait or a self portrait.
I wish she would make one for her mama....hint, hint.
Do your kids knit or cross-stitch?
