Mini babies




started to practice different stitching techniques.   thought i shouldn't be too ambitious at the start and therefore made some small patterns.  these mini sachets (made with linen from linnet) would be good for stuffing in some potpourri, for holding pins, clips, buttons, etc....
* white: overcast + french knot stitch
* pink: lazy daisy + chain stitch
* brown: padded satin stitch
although the white on white work is not as obvious and eye-catching, i like its effect the most. other ideas i am thinking of right now:
~ white stitches on a white cotton tee
~ white stitches on a white linen tote
~ white stitches on a white linen dress for sugar the poopoo
~ white stitches to create a balloon on a handkerchief for sansan
