Baby Betty Boop
When my friend Linda saw this embroidery design last week she said, "Oh, it's Betty Boop!" I hadn't quite noticed the resemblance, but this could be Betty as a baby. I am trying two things with this pattern. This one I have made into a tooth fairy pillow by appliquing on a heart that is open at the top. I am embroidering a second one on a blue background for a birth announcement pillow. I am going to embroider the baby's name, date of birth and birth weight in the area where the heart is. Then I will decide which one will become my pattern. It is hard to tell in this photo, but the wings are embroidered in a silver metallic thread. The thread has to be used in very short lengths or it frays and breaks so there was a lot of tying off and rethreading.
