More smocks

I am not sure if I prefer to call these smocks, pinafores or aprons. I like the word pinafore, but to me that conjures up a fancier image, something dainty and lacy. I think maybe smock is the best choice. At any rate, here are a few more smocks for my Etsy shop.

This is the detail on some halter tops I made for the girls, they both wanted snakes.
Ivy got a boa

and Miranda wanted a rattlesnake (this picture is a bit blurry)

I am pleased with both. The stitches are messy from a technical standpoint, but I like the effect. I am starting to learn how to manipulate the design a bit by building stitches on top of each other and it's turning out better than I expected, embroidery has never been a favorite of mine but I am enjoying it more.
