Every Little Stitch Counts
I've been working on a free embroidery project that's nearly completed. It's my latest custom decorated denim jacket, this one for my grandson who turned 2 years old on 2/2 - yep, his birthday is on Ground Hog Day. I've been working on this project for almost a year. Hand stitchery takes time, especially when you're working on the project like a painting - no design pattern, just inspiration.
I have a bit more artwork to add to the right side - possibly another smaller animal friend to join the smiling 4 season woodchuck. The design is based on a clip art graphic I created last year for Sawyer's 1st birthday. This denim jacket will be ready to roll as soon as the snow melts in NH.
Kinda looks like him - with a bit less hair.
