Butterflies make everything better

Screen Shot 2016-08-30 at 下午3.07.07
This white vest just like a nice canvas, I can do some designs to make it look better. What about draw a butterfly on the side?
Now, time to sew many knots on the butterfly shape.
And more knots.
And more knots.
It is going to be good!
Here is it, I also make some knots on the right shoulder to match the left design.
The butterfly on the left waist make the body look more slim and the should design make the whole design more interesting.

I actually fairly new to hand stitching, started a few months ago, and I only do the simplest stitching, I do not know much as you thought could be about hand stitching.

Beautiful! I love the splatter of knots on the side and on the shoulder. Creates a beautiful visual to the shirt. Great job!
