rhinoceros for baby
i stopped everything today to make a gift for tomorrow. i figure, who wouldn't love a rhinoceros? so i embroidered one on linen in variegated red (which looks orange here but it's not)and made some little pom-pom stripes with variegated blue, lined it with cream flannel and frayed the edges of both layers. i was inspired by this red rhinoceros and of course i am always insired by lalannes and their rhinoceros(es?). this blanket is too big to show the whole thing but the other side has a few blue pom-pom stripes but no rhinoceros. i am no skilled embroiderer and i am not a seamstress but i thought it would be cute....and different. i hope she likes it.
