I love all kinds of embroidery, but designs that make you smile really get me. Embroidery is great because if you have a medium that will hold up to the stitching, you can embellish it and carry your story with you. To me, that is what embroidery is; your story. If you think about it, you can wear it or bring your "embroidery" mood with you and speak volumes without ever saying a thing! It might even help break the ice in a nerve wracking situation like a first date or job interview. When I digitized this design, I wanted something that would be "saucy". I can imagine this going on a bag or jacket and giving someone a giggle. Another fun place would be on a baby bib. Now wouldn't that be the talk of your event! Don't you just love the sunglasses on that cactus? He is dapper... This is also an applique design. The cactus and the pot are both material so you can change it up with different colors depending on your application. Look for the design in my store. Two sizes are available - 4x4 here and a 5x7 here. I am really busy working on some great designs to bring to you. Check back often to see what is new. I digitize every day and test out designs to make sure they run optimally. Don't forget to look for the free designs also. Download and give them a try. I am enchanted with embroidery and am so lucky to be able to do it on a regular basis. I hope you have enjoyed this post, share what you learn and are generous with what you create. Someone will appreciate your hard work AND maybe get a smile from it.
