Sew & Stitch

You'll remember these invites I did for my good friend's baby shower. Well, she had the baby! It wasn't a girl after all, but we love him just the same. Sweet Sam is a very special little baby and deserved an equally special welcome-to-the-world gift.

I love how embroidery can breathe life into calligraphy as the lettering takes on a third dimension. Selecting colors and pairing it with the perfect patterns create unending (and very pretty!) potential.

Speaking of the perfect pattern, I thought these smiling whales were amazing—they're equal parts happy and boyish (footballs and sports equipment are not required on all things boy.) I coupled this with a complementary, equally happy, bright red-orange fabric and embroidered his calligraphed name and birthdate in the same bold hue. The result is a special keepsake for Ben's best friend, Sam.

Side note, our Easter flowers bloomed into the most splendid bouquet, don't you think?
