Sweaters and jumpers and ladybugs, oh my!

A while back, a website-friend posted a picture of some sweaters she had made.  Well, she’s British, she calls them jumpers.  Not important to the story.  What is important is this; it never occurred to me that you could embroider on a sweater, but here was the proof!
Armed with my newfound knowledge I decided to try it.  Here is the sweater I made for my granddaughter for Christmas:
It’s long because it’s meant to be worn as a dress.  Can’t you just see this with red tights and black boots?  I can.  Now I hope it gets cold enough this winter for her to wear it at least a few times!!  And I hope Polly will forgive me for shamelessly copying her original idea.

That is so cute! I can see it with red or blue tights.

Thanks! I'm pretty proud of it. I love trying something new and having it actually work.
