Barbara's Embroidered Blouse
Last year I made an embroidered blouse with fabric Debra embroidered for me. My mom liked in so much, she asked for one of her own for her birthday.
For mom's blouse I sent Debra some bright red poly cotton-- Mom hates to iron--and used the same blouse pattern I used for myself. My blouse had embroidered sugar skulls in addition to birds, and Mom got flowers, birds, and butterflies for her blouse.
This is a very easy process: I email Debra and she sends me links to available designs. Then I send Debra fabric with the places marked where I want the designs, and she mails it back to me ready to sew. I'm thinking I'll ask Debra to embroider these designs on another batch of fabric so I can make myself a blouse, maybe in black. They would also make cool pillows.
