Hand Embroidery

I received a fabric in my shop recently that is printed with the Colorado State bird and flower.

I thought these would be perfect souvenirs for tourists traveling through who stop at my shop, especially since they only cost $1.00 each! A local customer purchased one and embroidered it then turned it into a pillow sleeve. It is adorable! So I decided to embroider one.

I'm not sure what I will do with mine, but it sure was fun to do and didn't take very long. I used size 8 Eleganza pearl cotton embroidery thread for my version and it measures about 10" by 10" at the moment.
