Just a little "change of pace or topic" until I post the final installment of my ideas on "inspiration and creativity."
This is a little girl's sweater, approx. a 3 year old size.
I originally knit the sweater and never planned the embroidery. I finished the sweater and thought it was awfully plain and w/o interest. I decided I needed to punch it up a bit and then I wound up with a 6 month project of adding the embroidery! It was actually a fun project but way more involved than I had originally intended.
I had no plan or pattern to work from. I just started adding the stems first, then the big flowers to the front, back and sleeves and finally the small area at the bottom after the big sweater pieces were put together. I crocheted the ruffle around the bottom and the band on the front.
