another kid art embroidery project

We're having the annual spring fundraiser event and silent auction for the school that I work at on Saturday. Last year I made a quilt for the auction. This year I have decided to donate the offer to make a throw pillow embroidered with the winner's choice of a piece of kid art. I love both children's drawings and embroidery, and this will be the second time I have combined them. See my tutorial here.

I'm going to make a sample to illustrate what I'm offering using the drawing above. It's a picture of a little girl who stopped growing, but whose arms did not stop growing. Our fundraising chair's daughter drew it so it can double as a thank you gift for all her work.
