lotus flower embroidery design

Around Christmastime I found a simple black tank dress on the clearance rack at Old Navy for less than $10.  I thought it would be the perfect blank canvas for some crazy machine embroidery, so I snapped it up.

My friend, Alix, is a willing recipient of all my crazy embroidery creations (e.g. the sweatshirt I made for Christmas).  Since her birthday was at the end of February  (Leap Year, exactly, which is kind of bizarre), I had the perfect opportunity to do something crazy with this black dress and give it to her for her birthday.

Lately when I have been embroidering on skirts – I’ve embroidered designs around the hemline or up the front of the skirt.  I was really wanting to do something different.  Since this dress had such a high neckline I thought I would embroider something on the chest.  My only concern was that a design stitched out on the chest might look too casual.

Don’t ask me how I came up with the idea of a lotus flower design… but after test stitching it out, I knew I had a winner.  I just finished stitching the design on the dress and I’m so excited I can hardly stand it.

Maybe I should make something else for my friend and keep this one for myself?

The lotus flower embroidery design is now available.
