A (long) while back, someone I know saw my work and asked if I could make a gift for her daughter. I happily agreed.
She did not care what I made, and insisted she would be happy with anything in any color. Very sweet.
Unfortunately, I ended up with creative block. Most of my work includes beads, charms or buttons. This needed to be something without any choking hazards. There were too many options and too many ideas. Over time, I watched as this friend shared photos on social media and decided pink looked like a good color to use.
Using a stem stitch, I embroidered the young lady's first initial onto pink sparkly fabric with a variegated pearl cotton floss.
This pink butterfly print was used for the lining and the back.
I have one more project to finish up this week so the two items can be on their way to an adorable young lady!
I am joining Monday Stitchery Link Party #126 at Super Mom - No Cape!
The vintage embroidery pattern shared at the party this week is a covered bridge. I am trying so hard to finish up projects this year without starting new ones, but I have soooo many ideas seeing this embroidery pattern.
If any of you are interested in embroidering the covered bridge, we could do a little stitch-along, using that pattern in common and see just how unique our creations turn out. (Yes, I am looking for enablers to join me in some stitchy-fun!) Just let me know! In the mean time, I will be working on another finish or two to justify a new start...
Thanks for stopping by!
