So, friends are having a baby in a few months that they are naming Lily. Here are a few onesies I made for her: Lily of the Valley, Water Lily, Tiger Lily, and a Cubs logo, for the dad.
I was too impatient to post, so the Tiger lily and Cubs onesies both still have stabilizer on the back of them, and the Cubs one is still sopping wet from washing out the tracing marker. Oh, and I've only embroidered two tea towels before this, so I'm still a beginner!
I used back stitch, stem stitch, satin stitch (padded), split stitch, pistil stitch, french knots, threaded back stitch. I also learned that t-shirt stabilizer doesn't like it when you use all 6 strands, but does okay with 3 or 2. I got the lily patterns from a book of embroidered flower patterns, but after the Lily of the Valley, I just used them as outlines instead of following the complete stitch instructions.
