For Henri


Ok, since the gift was received, I will show you pictures. The squirrel pattern is one of Andrea's from Bad Bird. I guess I'm not such a horrible embroiderer after all. God bless the backstitch. Turns out much better for me than anything else. Pretty foolproof. I like this little guy.


And the banner is from Sublime Stitching. I almost forgot that I had the book! Jeez, for almost a year now and I'm just now cracking it open.

So I was "inspired" (ahem) by Danielle's wonderful baby gift and thought I'd modify it a bit and give it a whirl. I like the pockets on this organizer because you could actually use it as a diaper stacker if you wanted to. They are pretty wide and deep.

Naomi said his room will most likely be yellows and greens with a forest theme. I was happy to find these buttons because they looked like cross sections of a tree. I wish I'd had some appropriate vintage buttons to use, but I didn't.
Anyway, I was pretty happy with how it turned out. I had to give her a disclaimer about a couple little flaws, but that's the charm of handmade, right?
