I used to embroider, a lot and in many different ways. One of my favorite projects was some very cool designs I sewed on my brothers white painters pants when he was like 7 years old. He is now in his mid forties and being the sentimental pack rat that he is I believe he still has them. Those designs were pre-printed iron-on patterns for rocket ships and robots that I just filled in. I have searched high and low for something similar without success.
Pre-dating that slightly I had my 70’s “patchwork” phase. I patched and sewed my jean and anything else I could find…
I also had a free form phase-I embroidered at least two items for my niece-who is also pushing 40. I embroidered a baby pillow case for her with her name and some flowers and another scene that I copied from a post card- flowers and a balcony, I think.
I cross stitched for many years but cross stitch is very limited.
Fast forward, 2014-this is my new project
Hey it’s not Picaso but I enjoy making the details and it keeps me
off the sauce, errrr… out of trouble!!
