Baby Shower Gift

I made these for a soon to be born baby girl named Eden! They are iron on transfers from a Monogram book that I put onto pre-made receiving blankets I bought.
This one I filled in the 'E' with yellow stem stitching and also stem stitched the vines in. The flowers are pink french knots.
On this 'E' I chain stitched the outline in pink and then chain stitched the flowers too I love how it gives them a dimensional look! The center of the flowers are french knots with 3 strands of thread to make them large. The leaves and the outline of the 'E' are done in stem stitch.
