I made this for my mom yesterday. her birthday is coming up in a couple of days and as always cash is few and far between. So, I have been wanting to embroider a vw bug lately and figured it would be perfect for her since she had a blue one when we were kids. I found an image on the internet and added a little bit to it.

The only way to make this better would be to hang it on my hoopla wall  Wink
Love it!

Thanks! I am gonna make more of them in different colors. I am trying to draw one up on this pretty aqua floral fabric I have. I think I am gonna embroider it in a nice vibrant yellow!

I remember as a kid seeing tons of them on the roads and living in a beach town it was one of the rides of preference along with the VW bus. Now you hardly see any on the road these days....
