Bike Birthday Card

My brother is absolutely bike obsessed. He commutes to work on bike and takes long tours in his free time. He works a non-bike-related job so he can save up to start his own custom bike frame business. So I wanted to make him a custom bike birthday card.

He is very very tall, so his bike frame looks a bit odd:

Here’s my embroidered version:

I used ombre pink thread and attempted to match it up to the fade on the bike, but that didn’t work out so well. He liked it though, and was surprised on what I got right (since I know nothing about the specifics of how a bike fits together. The wheels are the major leap from reality).

I liked the result and thought it would be fun to try something a bit smaller for more average sized bicyclists. Et Voila!

One blue bicycle with upgraded tires! And that’s how the bicycle card in the shop came to be.
