First Stab at Embroidery

I love the look of hip, hand embroidered "stuff" - pillows, clothes, bags, tea towels - anything really. I've been researching and trying to teach myself this fine art. I chose to applique a shirt for my daughter and then embroider for a cleaner look.

Not too shabby right?



By the way, appliqueing letters is tricky.




And what girl DOESN'T love shoes?
