Chain stitch embroidery's has been a way to mimic the act of drawing with thread since the 5th century BC. This edition is the result of my first doodles with my new-to-me vintage Singer machine. Each patch can be sewn onto a favorite jacket, help repair a hole in your jeans or be used as individualized coasters for your place settings. This edition places faces in spaces - little friends to cherish and carry around with you; however you use them — love the drawing!
