Embroidered butterflies


IMG_2567More jammies for Grandmeow.  These are still the tried and true pattern.  In fact, it’s getting a bit tattered around the edges, and I may have to see about transferring it to sturdier paper.  Yup!  One of these days!

Anyway, the fabric in these is a small cotton print.  I thought it looked a bit blah, so spiced things up with a touch of machine embroidery.

IMG_2568The design is from Embroidery Library.  A fairly recent offering, I believe.  What’s nice about it is that the stitching is not dense at all, which means it will be soft and comfy on these jammies.  I really dislike when designs stitch out like bullet-proof kevlar – nice to look at and impossible to wear.

I stitched with 2 layers of wash-away stabilizer, and did a mirror image of the design on right and left sides of the placket.  The final touch was adding some rhinestones to the flower centers and butterfly wings.

Grandmeow likes her bling.  Even when sleeping!
