Soccer bird

My 5 year old buddy Mikel is graduating
from pre-school next week, 
so I made him this embroidered linen folder cover
so he can show off all of his work in style
on graduation day :)
He is a big soccer fan.

I did the lettering with my alphabet hand carved stamps
and a white ink pad and embroidered the rest.
And I used natural linen 
and a striped cotton fabric to do the cover.

Sigh, this is simply beautiful. I still have a book that someone stitched for me when I was a baby so this gift is sure to be treasured.

I've just discovered your blog and I'm amazed how many beautiful things you've made, including this adorable folder for your lucky son. By the way, Daniel's "Red cat chasing a fly" is gorgeous.

My daughter just graduated from pre-k too but now I feel like a total slacker! That folder is just beautiful. What a great idea! Much better than the bland old folder I have my daughter's papers in. Hmm. Thanks for the inspiration!
