Embroidery And "Bugs"

As you can see I somehow managed to load my pictures in backwards and have started with the "Bugs" instead of the embroidery. I thought this cute flannel material would make adorable pajamas for my granddaughter. It's made with three little bug buttons on the bodice that are not seen too well beacuse they blend into the bugs on the fabric. There are two more in the back for closure. The pants are made with an elastic waist that can be easily adjusted for size.
The embroidery is the new green quilt block for my granddaughters crazy quilt. The bow on the yellow roses is made with gold metallic thread. The entire project was made using a single thread instead of three. This gave the roses a more textured appearance while still giving them depth. It was difficult to do, but with practice anyone knowing embroidery techniques can do it. This project was made with an iron-on transfer pattern while the colors can vary according to taste. I hope you enjoy your own projects as much as I'm enjoying mine! Happy sewing!
Made With Love As Always,
