Hello from the Netherlands! I’m here visiting our university’s campus in Leiden before attending a conference in Spain. I know, I know… My life is rough. And how does this all relate to machine embroidery?
My colleague in Leiden has a 1-year-old son, Freddie, who I had never met so I wanted to take him a little gift. But since I had never met the little tyke and didn’t know what he was into, I decided to use the gift giving opportunity to help convince his parents to move to (my home town ) St. Louis! It IS actually a possibility that they may move… which would be great from my point of view.
So I bought Freddie a simple t-shirt from Target – which currently has some really cute kid clothes – but not much that is plain enough for appliqué. But I think this blue t-shirt with subtle stripes is perfect for this design. It’s kind of retro and reminds me of the sky. AHHHH – lovely.
Like the concept? It’s actually a hybrid of two designs I sell in my Etsy store: the arch design plus any of the states that contain an appliqué heart. Enjoy and happy embroidering!
