Bev from Flamingo Toes has come out with a fabulous, new embroidery book. I LOVE hand embroidery. It is one of my favorite ways to use my hands while watching tv or kids sports games or sitting at the airport. It is a great, portable hobby that is relatively inexpensive and once you learn a few basic stitches, you will have confidence to take on practically anything. Bev does a wonderful job of teaching basic embroidery stitches and skills in her book, now widely available wherever you like to purchase books.
When I was looking through her book and trying to decide which project I’d like to make, I was really drawn to her embroidered denim jacket. I wondered how I could modify this to create a cute little jacket for my not-quite-2 year old daughter. I decided to take some of the flowers and leaves from this pattern as well as some from another pattern in her book to create a fun, little floral scene on the back of my daughter’s jacket.
My daughter has loved this little jacket and has wanted to wear it a lot since I’ve finished it. It would make a really fun gift for a baby shower, or a project to make for yourself! Make sure to check out Bev’s book and blog for all of the other projects that have happened!

This is just so cute, Jen! Little Miss A isn’t quilt so little anymore.
