As I mentioned in an earlier post, Cheri's daughter gave birth on January 1st. I created a pink pinafore for little Evie Marie and soon this lovely will be winging its way via post to North Carolina. It began as my second pinafore in Ruth Rae's Poetry Pinafore class at the now defunct Art Fiber Fest (I hope Teesha reinstates this fab retreat!) a couple of summers ago. Like many of my projects it languished in the corner of my studio with other UFOs. I pulled it out and finished it for Evie. I used hand-dyed muslin for the base and had already stitched the alphabet at the hem of one side and "Pretty in Pink" on the other. I added some bling, ribbons, and free motion stitched Evie's full name and date of birth to finish.
