Puppy Shortalls

Lydia (13.5 years) made this shortalls outfit for her youngest brother, Ben.  This is her 4-H fair entry, and she received a blue ribbon this week.

The pattern is found in the book, Mastering Shadow Work Embroidery, by Wendy Poche Schoen.

006Lydia gained the skill of shadow work embroidery when she attended a meeting of the Lakes & Prairies Smockers last year.  The “puppy” above is worked in DMC thread that “shadows” through from behind the white pique fabric.  The red and white specked fabric is a cotton fabric with 3 percent Spandex purchased from Ginny’s Fine Fabric in Rochester.
