Ella's Embroidery

This week Ella used her new-found sewing skills to learn how to embroider.  I bought this very simple embroidery kit at Sewn Studio in Oakley.  She finished it quite quickly and she was so pleased with herself.  I've always loved embroidery, and want to try my hand at it as well.  Penguin & Fish made this kit, and they have lots of patterns on Etsy, perhaps I need to invest in some more.  I know I have a huge collection of floss in the basement somewhere from the days of friendship bracelets. 

Adorable little hedgehog

So cute! If she enjoyed this, she'd probably love cross-stitching. Mom gave me several little samplers when I was her age, and I loved doing them.

That little guy would look so cute as a pillow for Ella's bed! Add some colorful bands around the edges, a backing and voila! All that cuteness of the hedgehog is available for a snuggle! Ella did a great job!
