I have really gotten into emroidery. I love cherry blossoms and decided to embroider them onto the pocket edge of a hoodie i have. It took me a while to get the branch to lay right on the curve of the edge of the pocket. I was kinda sad because I couldn't get great pics, but they are good enough to get an idea. I love color so I decided to do mulit-colored blossoms because i love color although I know there is no such blossom around Wink. I am really happy with how it turned out. I decided to line the pockets with a green with hot pink polkadot fabric to hide the back of the stitches and keep them safe. Let me know what you think.


thanks


here is a close up of the blossoms.



here are a few shots  showing them side by side



here is one that shows the pocket lining peaking out ( this is the actuall color of the hoodie)  Tongue



this shows the whole hoodie to see it all together, but hard to see detail. SORRY



It needs something else on it?   i do love the pockets as they are but I am wanting to add maybe something on the actual hood part like right on the center just a little piece of cherry blossom or something . I also wanted to add a different string that goes through the hood. you know just to add some color elsewhere on the hoodie. Thanks for reading and let me know what you think. don't want to get it over done:)

This is great. I think it would look great with a cherry blossom in the center of the hoodie. I want to go jazz up mine now.

thanks so much! I appreciate it. I do think I will embroider more on the hood part. When I get that done I will show and see what you all think! Smiley

What a lovely simple design! I like that you embroidered on something entirely wearable and functional, rather than just embroidered random fabric then made it into something (as I have a habit of doing)! Very nice!

Tattoos are a craft, right?

that's really cute! What a great idea. I think it'd be cute to do the pattern around the face on the hood, too, or maybe just a spring on the front of the hood.  I have a hoodie that has a pattern inside the hood so that is when it is laying in back you can see the pattern - that might be cute, too!
