something new in the needle and thread department

i just finished this gibson explorer inspired onesie for my niece.

it is a gift for one of her friends whose brother is a musician.  the words are a reference to one of his band's albums.  what i especially like about this onesie is the intentional not-so straight green border.  i think it gives it a more handmade feel rather then doing a border that's perfectly straight.

i also finally finished the tea towel for my parents' christmas gift.  now that they've received it i can finally post the pictures online (both sets of grandparents actually received this gift).  i took a few of emma's drawings and transfered them on a tea towel, then embroidering them based on the colors she used for the original drawing.  the patterned fabric was added to cover up the back side of the embroidery to give it a cleaner look. 

my favorite is the picture she drew of our family, with me holding baby gibson (see the 2 sets of eyes on the one body?).

and now i've got to work on some pieces to donate for an upcoming fundraiser helping the hunger relief efforts of trinity lakewood community outreach.  check out local girl gallery for more information on or would like to attend "soul food: feed the hungry feed the soul" event.

The drawing of you holding Gibson made me teary. So cute.
