Doll Quilt 4 Swap Preview

I have been having lots of fun working on my swap doll quilt. I haven't been able to do any real sewing since the flooding, so this is what I've been still able to work on.

The picture is something I've been working on for quite awhile. I took inspiration from a few different pictures, but it was all totally drawn by me. It's supposed to look like my oldest son. I guess it's how I imagined his first kiss will be, and the girl is supposed to look like the girl I imagined it would be with, but it must not look too much like her because my son and my husband didn't recognize her, so I said I made her up. We'll see how psychic I am.

Anyway, I colored it in crayon, set it, then embroidered everything in brown with a backstitch.

I forgot my camera at friends' house, so it's a scan, hence the little ripples.

So cute!

"I colored it in crayon and set it." Oh... How do you do that?

Thank you!

I literally colored with normala crayons (crayola I believe) then I put paper towel under it and over it and ironed. I changed the paper towels when they were coated with greasy wax. I continued to do this until it didn't come off on the paper towel anymore. I think I used 3-4 paper towels.
I also threw it in the dryer on hot just to be sure it was set. I don't know if it did anything, but in my head it seemed like a good idea =)
