So tomorrow my crush is graduating from college.  He has invited me to his party and so I wanted to have something small to give him, I didn't really think of something until he asked me what I made for the OTHPT2 swap, where I made embroidered buttons.  He seemed genuinely interested in them and didn't quite understand the concept, so I figured I would make him one in honor of his graduation.  Will he ever have a use for it?  I doubt it, but it just something small to commemorate this great accomplishment.

Now before the pictures let me say that this is no where near perfect, I only just began embroidery a month ago, and haven't done anything since the swap.  This was my first time ever attempting a satin stitch, I think that's the one, and I know there is a mistake in the dolphins tale, it wasn't noticeable until I had already covered the button and it honestly doesn't look as bad in person as it does in the pictures.  The button is 1 1/8 inches, so everything was completely freehanded as a result.  The button is in his favorite color as well as our school color, and it has our school name and 11 for the year he is graduating.  I hope he likes it, and any comments would be welcome.  I am very new to this craft, but definitely loving it.   Cheesy

I think it looks great, and I am sure he will love it. It is a special memory.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
