thursday = embroidery

today I'm sharing the other gift I made for a little boy who turned one recently & who had a dog themed birthday party:


the illustration is from one of the very first books I ever posted here on the blog


the umbrella, hat & clothes are all embroidered fabric and the papers & letters are from the scrapbooking store.

I was really happy with the way this turned out & have already started another project in a similar direction which I hope to finish this weekend so I can share it next week.

and for this week's embroidery pattern I've selected some animals from Design 502:


thanks everyone for voting on the xmas poll...it looks like we are definitely going to be getting in the holiday spirit around here starting next week, since the votes are leaning toward one day a week!

Your new embroidery collages are just amazing!

Thanks for the compliments (and the pattern) on the squirrel. I'll be posting about him and the doe very soon.

I always find animals dressed up as humans to be really cute. I love how the dog has a umbrella and even buttons on his suit.
