One of my besties introduced me to the Avett Brothers last year, and I am completely hooked! (If you haven't heard of them, you should check them out; they're amazing!)  She has the Emotionalism album cover tattooed on her back, but it is very rarely seen... so I decided to embroider the symbol and the band name and stick it on a hoodie for her to wear as a birthday gift.  I think it came out really well and she loved it!  (or at least she told me she did!)

The bird symbol is embroidered with satin stitch and backstitch.  The Avett Brothers patch is in backstitch.  There is also a heart embroidered on the front but I don't have a pic.

C&C welcome!  And go check out The Avett Brothers!!

I've been listening to The Avett Brothers for 3 years now and I can't tell you how much I love them. Theyre my all time favorite band and I think your jacket came out very nice looking. I would love to get something like this as a present. =)

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

The Avett Brothers are my favorite band ever! I have been thinking of doing pretty much exactly this for a while, I think I will now that I have seen how well yours turned out!
