Baby Chick Embroidery

Remember how I told you guys that I took up embroidery last year?  Sadly, I only rarely showed you guys any of my projects... largely because I didn't straighten them out and frame them, but this is a rare exception. I actually made this piece pretty early on in my embroidery career for the boyfriend's mother on her birthday.

I picked out some baby chick patterns from the Doodle Stitching by Aimee Ray book I've mentioned here before and just made this - three baby chicks in a row!

Here they are before they went in the frame...

A close up...

Then, I used the Silhouette to cut a frame shape from some patterned pink cardstock. Then, I just put them together and voila!

The boyfriend's mom loved it... probably because she loves her baby chicks, but I'm pretty proud of this little piece of artwork!

I'm linking up to some of my favorite link parties...

  9. T-shirts have the notorious habit of quickly transforming from a customer's delight into a digitizer's nightmare. Why? Firstly, t-shirt material is thin; secondly it's stretchy and therefore unstable; and at times it turns out to be translucent too.embroidery digitizing
