Or is it a non-embroidery.  I stitched this up by winding embroidery thread onto the bobbin for my sewing machine (just a regular machine, doesn't sing or dance) and away I went. 



The outside blue sky circle was the first part, so it was a little wobbly till I got the tension and stitch size right.  The clouds were last, and i think they came out the best. 



It is part of the dress I made for DD.

Thaks for looking, and I'd love to hear your comments.

You don't need a permit for a glue gun.

The dress is perfect, I love the gray/pink combo. I use a similar pattern for my own kid, and just love it.  The embroidery! Well I have to admit, at first I thought it was some kind of peek-a-boo face, but then I saw the sky. I have to say, it just adds more awesome to it though, like a two-in-one deal.

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

Thanks. I love the combo too.  i have made miss heaps of dresses from this pattern, it is so fast to whip up.

Is that what its called?  I figured if something as thick as shirring elastic would go thru, then why not floss.  Now I must go and buy DMC in every colour, coz I only have what I used above.
