The Angelica typeface put to the test on a baby towel

This blog could also be titled…”how blogging everyday improved my relationships with my neighbors.” Here’s how. My neighbor/friend, Jessica, was in a bind. She needed to get a baby gift together quickly to send her friend, Greg and his wife and new baby, who are living in China. The mother of the Greg was leaving today to visit the new baby in China, and Jessica wanted to get a baby gift in her suitcase.
Jessica found one of several bargain baby towels she purchased from Lord and Taylor when it was going out of business a few years back. It’s a darling bunny hoodie towel – perfect for a baby girl. She thought that embroidering the baby’s name on it would give it the perfect finishing touch.
This is where I come into the picture. Normally embroidering names on other people’s items is not my favorite thing to do. I worry that I am going to ruin the item. But being that I have been doing SO MUCH embroidery lately – I was feeling pretty confident. Also – she liked the Angelica type face – so it gave me an opportunity to test it out.
I think the hooded towel turned out pretty well. And I think the typeface stitches out quite nicely – perfect for a little girl. By the way – please don’t ask me how to pronounce the name. Hey – at least it looks good.
