    I'd love to see a close-up of the needlework. What kind of thread did she use?


    Some close-ups of the second one she made. The thread is a simple cotton thread from IKEA.

    Cool.

    My wife can sew. I just asked her if she could make me some. She said 'sure'.

    Is the first one a Liberty of London print?

    Regardless, very nice, all of them.

    This has also inpsired me....to ask a sibling who is adept with the needle (sewing needle) to try this for me. She's actually altering some Borrelli pants for me later today [​IMG]

    Thanks everyone for your compliments, they make my wife very happy!

    Yes, they are all Liberty of London prints, as a matter of fact.

    These are lovely. I have been thinking for a while now about trying this myself for cost savings and having the chance of finding more interesting patterns like you have chosen.

    So I drew a little bit of inspiration from this thread and picked up a couple of different gingham fabrics from Walmart for my girlfriend and I to try the same thing. What kind of process/stitch did she use?

    She basically just looked at my other pocket squares, and also at this guide from Sam Hober:
