On the fringe!

Little Sew N Sews has really been making the birthday party circuit lately!

A customer recently asked me to make a horse tee for a 7-year-old who is a great horsewoman and a fashionista to boot.

At first we looked for a cute applique design but never came up with the right look. I stumbled upon this design which uses machine embroidery to create fringe for the horse's mane and tail.

Since I've never tried the fringe technique, I went through several pieces of fabric testing out the sewing and trimming and finally felt confident enough tonight to sew out the real thing. I think it's adorable. And I hope Landree thinks so too!
