Little Red

I have this fascination with Little Red Riding Hood lately and I decided that I wanted to make something for my daughter's room with "Little Red" on it so I decided to try freestyle embroidery. The design is completely my own. I started off with a quick sketch of "Little Red" on a scrap bit of paper. That's what I based the whole embroidery on and then I just made the rest up as I went along. I know my stitches are a bit messy and it's not perfect because my embroidery skills are a little limited but I'm happy with it. I love this crayon tinting thing with new embroidery. I think it looks super effective.
This was great fun to make. It's such a great craft to do while I'm watching my daughter play, see she's at the age that she wants to be Miss Independant and do everything on her own!So, I'm hooked on embroidery at the moment. I've even been to the library already to pick up a how-to on stitches so I can do another project. I'm not sure what it will be yet but I'll no doubt post it here when it's done.

Happy Crafting! :)
