To accompany the blankets I made recently for birthday presents I also made some tshirts. I have already made all the kids tshirts with names so this year I am making tshirts with the appropriate number birthday on them. Numbers are from the lovely Kate at Big Dreams Embroidery on Etsy and you can find her here http://www.etsy.com/shop/BigDreamsEmbroidery

Another birthday in the family meant yet another blanket to embroider. This time I decided to keep it nice and simple. I choose a cupcake theme for this one so its the name with a choclate to the left and a cupcake to the right. Just gorgeous don't you think?
I also embroidered a tshirt as well. The fabric used in the appliqued capital "K" was also used in the making of a library bag and reader cover for the same girl, so hence it was matching!

My husband's niece turned 8 yesterday and she wanted a blanket with reindeer on it. Thats all, nice and simple eh? Originally I was going to put some lovely reindeer appliques on the minky blanket (purchased) then I realised you cannot iron minky so had to rethink. I found these lovely reindeer (all nine of then with names too) for my embroidery machine so set about using them. I added some snowflakes as well seen as the blanket was so huge (150cm x 170cm) and I cut the two layers apart to make the embroidery process a little easier.
So can you name all nine reindeer without looking first?
