disrobe...

no peeking!



and step into my parlor...

my tattoo parlor...



my embroidery tattoo parlor, that is!

Needles? 


Yes, there are needles with many, many colors.

This won’t hurt a bit!

‘dis robe is now sporting a monogram sleeve tattoo!


Dis this monogram looks to match mid-century
1950’s style design.

But surprisingly,
it is based on artwork drawn much earlier in 1902.

What's your favorite dis robe?


it's just embroidery, have fun with it!

Wow, that is a lot of needles, Cathy! I am amazed at how it works to do the embroidery. Love the shade of pink you used. My favorite robe is an ankle length fleece one. I always feel comfy cozy in it during the winter months.

I am always so impressed! I love it! How did you get that picture of the needle sewing in motion? Well done!

Hi Cathy..It is not particularly cold where I live so I just put on an old cardi when I feed the dogs in the morning, then have a shower etc. I love the embroidery on the sleeve idea!

My favourite dressing gown looks much like the one in your photo, but without the beautiful embroidery.

I just got a fluffly little white number at Bed, Bath and Beyond. Love wrapping up in the morning and right before bed!

It would look much cuter though with a snazzy little monogram!

TATT is SO CUTE! I have one hanging on a hangar in my bathroom. I never thought to get it monogrammed. I did before, but this makes me want to do it again!! XO, Kelly

neat font- is everything you own monogramed or embellished? I would think it's hard to stop :)

The stuff you do just continues to amaze me. I still want to make a pillow for my daughter and will send fabric as soon as I get my act together. Thanks!
