Happy Saturday everyone!Translated by Whitney Bolin[:]
For this special week, here’s another DIY that I love and the studio adores since it’s really fast and easy to make. I think that I just might embroider mimosa all over this shirt’s collar! It’s official, after this theme week and our Bee My Baby collection, mimosas beat peonies and hortensias. They’re one of my favorite flowers! I can’t count the number of times I’ve bought mimosas over the past few weeks. I think I may be responsible for all 2017 sales... Anyways, aren’t they so delicate and fragile? Mimosas are round and fluffy usually for a few days, but in an overheated studio, they only last a few hours... So I need a long term solution to keep them bright and yellow. Last year, Charlotte made us a beautiful paper cake for Make My Lemonade’s four year anniversary. She used little yellow scrapbooking pompoms for the daisies. I had also used them for the darling veil that Karuna and I taught you to make. Here’s a “slightly” sped up version of how to embroider mimosas on a sailor top!
As you can see, it’s really easy to make this. I’ll get into the details for those who’d like to start embroidering but have no idea where to start! To start with, to embroider this DIY, you’ll need:
Next, using yellow thread, attach the little yellow mimosa pompoms by threading through their middles. Have fun! And TA-DA!
