Applique lingerie set

I designed this pretty set a few years back for my embroidery friend, Maresa.  She saw something similar on bags and thought it a brilliant plan to keep underwear tidy in suitcases whilst travelling.
It is an applique design incorporating puffy foam for the underwire affect of the bra.  I used silver braid on this stitch out, for the bra straps together with bridal satin and a lace insert on the panty.  The back strap of the bra may be omitted.

If you fancy it and would like to embroider it as well, you can find it here.

Wedding Gift - Embroidered Towels

About the only client I still embroider for, ordered another set of towels for a wedding.  I have done quite a few sets over the last 10 years or so for her and she still adores every set.  I have free reign about what to put on the towels as well as the colours.  For these one's, I used a monogram from Sonia Showalter. 

The hand towels and facecloths.

The bath towels

And lastly, the bath sheets.
