TaDa...

So a couple of posts back I said that I was going to try my hand at a little embroidery, well, I did and I LOVE it!  I am totally hooked on this.  What a relaxing crafty thing to do while the little one runs crazy in the back yard. I pulled out my Sublime Stitching book and just dove right in there with this super cute bird:

And, yup, that there is my first hand-embroidered wallet!!!
Since I used a copyrighted pattern for the embroidery, I can't sell it in my shop so it's mine all mine all mine!  I'm either gonna have to learn to draw, or see if I can apply to sell my items using the Sublime Stitching patterns. I think I saw you can apply somewhere on the website. Notice the super cute tag inside that was done by Jacqueline of Snappy Bibs.  She did a wonderful job, don't ya think?  The inside fabric is the cutest vintage cotton (from a sheet I think).  Anyway, I'm glad I laid down that challenge to myself for all of you to read! Now, what to embroider next?  (I have some ideas, but I don't want to spoil what could be a great surprise for someone!)

You are a goddess. Everything you touch turns out perfectly. Wow. GORGEOUS little bluebird.

I found a great book that kind of walks you through creating and stitching your own designs. Don't have it with me, so I can't give all the biblio information, but it's called Doodle Stitching. I got it at B&N, but I know it's available on Amazon. Fun stuff to play with.
