What makes a Sunbonnet Sam even better?
Frogs! (and a fly)
Or so my hubby said…repeatedly. I was going to have him holding a bouquet of flowers but the whining got too intense and I relented. Sigh. However, I even added a fly! And with that I introduce Susie’s beau, Sammy.
Sammy sports the same wing needle stitch work as Susie, in his hat and shirt, and in the sewout above I used the same pastel tones as I used when sewing Susie.

I’ve been hanging onto this idea for a long time. I don’t know why it has taken me so long to make one. Maybe hearing people say they are sick of them. There are a lot of them available. But I still like them and wanted to make this one not so much for quilting but dressing her up a bit with specialty stitches. From the response to Susie I made Little Susie for folks who want Susie but cannot sew a design that large.
I make many of my own stitches. In this case the wing needle stitches, the eyelets, and the woven fill on her hat.
Never miss out on the another release of a free embroidery design or embroidery designs announcement.
No Hurry To Get Home: A Memoir by Emily Hahn
"Nobody said not to go." - Emily Hahn
“In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.”
