I made this for one of my best friends who just got married. No patterns, I simply used carbon transfer paper after creating my own design. Enjoy!

(Note: The dark spots on the fabric are simply just damp areas from where I washed off the remainder of the carbon. I couldn't wait to take a picture of the finished product since I needed to wrap it right away!)

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

Thanks everyone! Tracy, I actually combined a satin stitch with stem stitching.
