Oui Oui!

It’s me! I’m back! And I made a Broccoli Monster!

It’s exciting.

So, from the front, this critter has many large chompers for chomping green veggies:

And on the back – a fancy veggie tattoo.

This little broccoli applique is made up of many many little french knots. Too many to count!

What’s a french knot, you ask? The Purl Bee has an excellent tutorial. And another great one over at Sublime Stitching – two great sites for any lovers of embroidery.

    I love what you have been doing! I can’t hardly doing so many french knots [I can hardly do one myself!].

    Thanks, Morgen! The French knots took forever – but you know I love to sew things that look like broccoli.

    HaHa! I like broccoli, too. Hint: I have the broccoli plush in my room! I am back to sewing again. Have you checked out threadbanger lately? Rob and Corinne left!!!!!!!!! I have been making zippered pouches that are approximately 10″ by 6″.
    I have made 4 of them so far. I have one that is turtle embroidered seersucker on the outside and is lined with plaid seersucker. i use it to hold my colored pencils.

    I love what you do!
