Carousel horse embroidery and stationary pattern



I was really inspired by AP's carousel horses and decided to make an embroidery design for a tote bag that would be a good compliment to them (even though I don't have one of the prints myself). I think I went a little wild with the color scheme... but what can I say, I love pastels ^^;

the bag-- I didn't make the bag, just the embroidery

I wanted a sort of starry, whimsical look

leg detail

I outlined with silver satin thread, and the curliques on the bottom are alternating shads of pink (to match the ribbon across the top of the design).



Also, I decided to make a little stationary design to use for embroidery commission thank you notes and whatnot, and I thought maybe someone else would like the design to print off, too. It's simple, but I like the way it turned out. Incidentally, I used one of the dresses from the sew_loli banner for the bottom silhouette.
So, here's a present for Lolita Day ;)

Feel free to use it/change the colors as you like, but please don't claim it as your own ^^
