I recently became an aunt again, so I busted out the cross-stitch to make a baby present. My sister-in-law loves elephants, so a lot of the things I make for my nieces have elephants on them. These elephants come in various colors, but pretty much never actually grey, like real elephants. These ones are blue.
In any case, I picked this stamped cross-stitch bib because it looked simple (I did one like it for my other niece), but in fact, it had two types of embroidery that I’d never done before. The butterfly wings were done with satin stitch, which basically fills in the whole area, and the antennae (and the grass) were done with stem stitch, which is like an overlapping backstitch.
