Yes, let the monogramming begin! Scott finally let me buy an embroidery machine! I did my research and decided on the brand and type I wanted. Rachel and I went to the shop in Baton Rouge and I listened to the sales lady tell me all about getting started...I thought...lady, really, do you know me? I grew up in a fabric shop I don't need to practice...this is going to come easy to me...WELL, let me tell you...it's NOT as easy as you think! I had my dear friend and mentor come over to get me started and I've been practicing ever since..on burp cloths...so, Lily will have lots and lots of burp cloths because they are so cheap and believe me you do need to practice! I don't think Lily will mind if some are crooked and if there's a hole cut in one....this is some of my best work so far....
|Turquoise and brown with lots of dots!|
|This was my first...and I love the ric rack that matched perfectly.|
|This is my favorite...love the little face and this font..it's called "Raven". I can't wait to do her in purple and gold for Lily's first game day outfit!|
|Gettin' fancy...and don't you love the zebra ribbon?|
|Embellishing to me is so much fun...I can spend more time deciding on ribbon trim than embroidering!|
|A tad crooked...|
|Must train her young to love leopard like her GrandZee...|
|Going to make her an outfit so I can make a hairbow like this...love it!|
I am working on onesies and learning applique now...more to follow!
