Wow, so once again, it's been forever and a day since I last wrote a blog post. That's mainly due to the fact that I'm frantically working on the first quilt for my now-ten-month-old son, and have made time for little else. I did, however, find some time to hand embroider some Onesies for my nephew that is due in December. I'll let the pics do the talking.
|Freehand drawing is not my thing. The lobster is a clipart from Microsoft, the baby budzo is word art from Microsoft, and the baby bunny is an embroidery pattern by Amy Sinibaldi.|
|I used Sulky 12wt cotton to stitch the bunny. It looked cute, but didn't hold up as well as the others, which used three strands of your standard embroidery floss. While I adore 12wt thread, I would save it for wovens, not knits.|
|I love how the stitching turned out on this one! Gator colors for this little guy, of course.|
Until next time, God Bless!
