Stitched by sweetjessie

Jessie, or sweetjessie, as she is known on Flickr and her blog, is a truly sweet crafter with a beautiful sense of color and pattern, and a talented stitcher. Lucky for us, she continues to contribute to our blog and we can expect many great things to come! Thanks, Jessie!

A mini interview with Jessie:

Your favorite DMC floss color? 151

Your favorite embroidery project? I think my favorite project ever was embroidering a drawing my son made (above). I loved his choice of color, and how much care he obviously put into it. It was a joy to recreate in embroidery floss.

Your inspirations? I'm inspired by so many images from the 1940's through the 60's - vintage children's school books, coloring books, paper dolls, candy colors, and sweet things! Most often, it's the vintage embroidery patterns themselves that inspire me.

One word answer:
Freehand or pattern? pattern!
Messy or neat? neat.
Cute or edgy? Cute.
