I just completed my first “real” embroidery project. An apron for my niece’s 7th birthday. I chose the butterfly pattern from my Sublime Stitching book by Jenny Hart because of all the cool colors it enabled me to use. I’m really pleased with how the butterfly turned out. However, I had wanted to do her name above the butterfly, but I just couldn’t get the pattern letters to iron on and couldn’t draw them on centered myself, so I went with the flowers instead. I like how the 2 color petals turned out in the flowers, I just made that up as I was doing it.
