Cleaning house physically, emotionally, and mentally.

Embroidery Semi-Fiasco

Having had a rough time the other day with my embroidery, I decided to go back to the drawing board.

I searched online for designs that were made for a 2 inch x 2 inch space. And here is one of them. Can you read it? Me neither. It says “Naps are important.”

Obviously I was not pleased, but decided to try one more little one. Little bunny face.

Nope, that did not work either. The same thread is used throughout the design. I am thinking that the thread gets lost in the tiny stitches so you don’t really see it. Also think that the onesie is a loose knit and stitches are done within the same space, thus basically no stitch.

So I moved on to a larger design for a baby bib. I had such high hopes.

Can you read it? It reads “Save room for dessert.” Another failure. Needless to say, I think I have given up on tiny embroidery. Miko agrees.

So I have turned to larger designs that I am embroidering on diapers for burp cloths. Here’s a funky snail.

And here is my favorite. This is an elephant with a design as done by a child. Cute!

So I am looking forward to success with larger designs.

Stay tuned.
