Yarn embroidery

I made this little pair of embroidered baby shoes over the last week. The pattern was in Debbie Bliss's Quick Baby Knits, which I have a copy of in my knitting library.

I made these little shoes because I wanted to try simple embroidery on a knitted item. But I have to say, it is a lot more difficult than you would think, to make it look OK. Don't look too closely - and bear in mind it was my first ever attempt!
