Embroidered Bandannas

I finished two of John’s bandannas about a month ago, the yellow and the blue one. The red and green will be done and sent with their Christmas gifts.
I always love how these look when done. It makes the time and work worth it.


A few different pictures of the blue one, which was done in wheatear stitch.

Then the yellow which was done in closed buttonhole stitch.

I enjoy both of these stitches, but the closed buttonhole is harder to get just right. Part of me wishes I wouldn't have used a color that blended so well. I am hoping to get back into some embroidery lesssons in January.
