Inspired by my sister who recently got involved in a week of vintage children's books posting I am going to get involved in a week of embroidery posting inspired by Meet Me at Mikes
hosted by Floresita.
I do love embrodiery but to be honest I have never followed a pattern - so I thought I would do two posts about how I create my embroidery patterns.
The work above is on a stretch knit fabric, which was sewn stretched over a painting stretcher (which I get custom made here in Eaglehawk!) - I sew using embroidery thread and I used stem stitch for this piece - although used my creative license a bit!
This design was poached from the front cover of a Home Beautiful type of magazine that I did a quick sketch from. Below is a quick tired mummy scan of my embrodiery design/pattern.
