So I began this vest as an embroidery challenge project for myself, starting first with the central ‘Suavecita’ patch. From there I decided to do an ode to my heritage, and did the 4 flags, each representing my ethnic background. All in total it took about 5 months of on-and-off work; the large patch being the most time-consuming. I tried to experiment with different types of embroidery stitches and patterns, and I loved the way it turned out! Still trying to figure out the best way to do a freehand border tho..
