One of the things I really enjoy about my current love of embroidery is the really quick turn around of satisfying projects, each completely different from the last.
Last week’s project even saw me dusting off my sewing machine for the first time in months, so that’s got to be a good thing.
I choose a pattern out of my Zakka Embroidery book
This one in fact.
I used this ingenious product
You can print or draw on it. Then you peel off the back and stick it to your fabric.
It is just transparent enough to trace a pattern as well, which is what I did.
About 3 hours of stitching later, spread over 4 nights
Then time for the magic as you wash away the transfer fabric
The completed article
This is what I turned it into last weekend, a jewelry pouch.
It’ll get so much use. I use these pouches in my ‘bling tin’ to keep my necklaces and bracelets from becoming entwined and tangled up. I need at least another couple.
The weather kept us indoors all last weekend, it was proper Yorkshire grey, cold and wet.
But a weekend put to good use, just the same. Whilst my other half re grouted the shower tiles, a job I was pleased not to be doing, I striped back and re waxed our much used kitchen table.
So, with a little help from Utube, from this
to finally thisHaving never done it before, incredibly satisfying, I must say.
Busy, busy, busy.
