Sewing Miss Daisy

May 20th

embroidery flowers, cu

My first attempt at freehand embroidery. I checked out Kid’s Embroidery from the library, after a thoughtful recommendation from Blair at Wise Craft. (Of course, she actually got this book for her children, but it is perfect for someone learning the basics of embroidery stitches.)

Mini flower pouch

Another wristlet/pouch. This one was a gift to Mini, who celebrated a birthday this week.
