I've been cross stitching forever, but I'm trying to teach myself to embroider.  I ordered Aimee Ray's Doodle Stitching books for some quick patterns, and then went to see my family for the weekend.  When I got there, my mom showed me a plain little shirt and shorts she had bought for my niece, and I knew I could dress it up!



Now, here's a close up of the shorts.  My neice (who's 2 1/2) kept pointing at it and saying "Audopus, Audopus!"

Thanks!  The shorts were a pain in my butt because they're a spandex fabric - but at least it made it easier to get a hoop around the area!  I picked the octopus because I loved the orange in the top - it seemed like a natural match.

Very cute. The shell and octopus are adorable.  Look out, though, now all of your clothes will look like embroidery opportunities!
