Is there anything cuter than baby clothes? Maybe babies..... but not always; sometimes they smell funny, LOL! I bought these little velour hoodies for a coming baby, and they're just perfect for adding a personal embroidered touch. The ivory colored one is smaller, so I did it with a pink/red variegated cast-on rose vine for Christmas/Valentine's day. The pale green one is a little larger, hopefully it will fit her for Easter and spring, so it got a birdhouse, blue bird, and lavender rose vine. All the embroidery was done using DMC perle in size 8, in some variegated colors and some plain. The bird house is satin stitch, with bullion roof, and French knot "holes". The blue bird is done in bullion (2 for the body), tiny, tiny buttonhole stitch (wings), French knot (head) and straight stitches (tail). The vine is feather stitch, with detached chain leaves and French knot flowers. These are so much fun, and I think they really make a simple little garment look fantastic.
