One of the benefits of going home to visit this weekend is that I'll get to see my baby brother graduate from school (he's been attending UTI in Chicago). I didn't get to go to his high school graduation, so this will be a special treat.
I made this gift card holder for him today. The in-hoop design was a freebie from Embroidery Garden, the cap/tassle came off of another freebie from Sew Forum, and the text was added with Embird Alphabet #33. I decided to try variegated thread for the satin stitch edge. It turned out pretty neat!
