I did something fun yesterday. My first try at shadow work by machine! I am making my fifth pinafore test sample and I decided to use a little embroidery on the yoke. I had admired the gorgeous shadow work designs available at Applique for Kids, so I thought I'd give it a try.
For the first one (top) I cut the yoke before embroidering and it wasn't centered. Ugg. Then I thought maybe I'd prefer a pink bow, so I did it again. It was centered, but the pink barely shows up. (Photo is enhanced- it's lighter in real life). The third one is my favorite- blue bow with yellow flowers.

I'm putting finishing touches on the Pinafore Pattern, which should be ready around May 1!!
