I'm at that stage in life where a lot of my friends/coworkers are having babies, so I've taken to making gifts for the expected bundles of joy. These are three that all have cross-stitched patches sewn onto them.

This is a jacket for a coworker whose son was born in February- the jacket pattern came from a book called One-Yard Wonders, and the Apple cross-stitch pattern was created from a picture using a piece of Mac software called Stitches. I made it on Aida cloth, then cropped and machine-stitched it to the jacket.

For another coworker, a hooded towel with the same Apple patch for his daughter born in January. The towel pattern is from www.sew4home.com. It's big enough for a toddler to fit into.



Lastly, same towel for a friend from grad school, with a dove on the hood. Daughter expected next month!

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