Embroidered Baby Nunu Blankets

My sister asked if I could embroider a couple of baby Nunu blankets she purchased as a baby-shower gift for a co-worker who is expecting twins.  I wasn't sure how I could do these cute blankets as the material is a soft, heavily-textured rosette fabric.  I thought maybe I would monogram the baby initial on an ear.


We gave it a try on the fabric, and it came out OK!

I hooped tear-away stabilizer, and used a bit of temporary spray-adhesive to secure it, along with a basting stitch around name.  I added a  water-soluble film on top to keep the stitches on top of the fabric.  We picked a silver thread to match the current stitching on the bunny's face.


This photo isn't the best, but the embroidery came out quite adorable!  So glad it worked!

Happy Stitching!!

    1. I agree. A gift doesn't have to be expensive to make it meaningful. Personalization always adds sentimentality.
