Embroidered Sweater

On the day Thomas turned 15 months, he started going to childcare one day a week. I labelled a bunch of clothes for Thomas to wear with laundry pen and blue ribbons attached to the tag inside. Then I needed to label this plain grey sweater. But it was too boring so I decided to do some embroidery instead!

My mother first showed me how to embroider chain stitch when I was a child. A couple of years ago I wanted to try it but couldn't remember how to do it. I watched a youtube video to remind me so I could embroider a D onto a handkerchief for David.

Stitching my son's name onto this grey sweater was easy, I drew it first with white crayon. I used some red crochet cotton for a nice contrast to the grey. I'm quite proud of how it turned out in a rustic kind of way.
