I couldn't wait to make this! I won a huge lot of vintage Workbasket transfers on Ebay and this was part of it. The stripe fabric is a cotton dishtowel. It is so kitschy cute that I almost can't stand it.
Now it just has to get warm enough to hang clothes on the line!
Let's get some springtime embroidery going here! Stitch some baby chicks and bunnies, flowers, spring showers, June brides, green grass... you get the idea... and post them here. I'll start by posting what I did a few weeks ago and posted in the completed section:
It was just my littlest daughter's birthday (6) and I decided it would be nice to sew some drawstring pouches as goodie bags. Apparently I lost most of my ability to think straight just 1 day before the party and thought it would be great to embroider the names onto patches and stitch them to the bags. I remembered to snap a picture right before leaving for the party so it's not the best:
Thankfully there were only 10 girls (did I really say only?) and I must say, they came out very cute all frayed and patchy. The girls were very excited about them too.
I've been home stuck on the couch with a stitched and busted up knee for 3 days and needed a mindless project and this seemed perfect, that is until I couldn't find my bamboo handles (my motherly instinct tells me that the 5 year old and Barbie had something to do with the disappearance). I used these black plastic ones and I think it looks ok. The yarn is a mystery mill end and I'm pleased with the way it striped.
