Crafty News — Embroidery
I'm so EXCITED to share this little secret with you... I was recently approached by STITCH Magazine and agreed to design a project for their Fantasy/Fairytale Issue available now for 2 months in WH Smiths! (Page 33) I only had 2 weeks to complete it and I'm so pleased that I managed to create on demand and to a tight time frame. Its made me very keen to design more silk shading projects in the future. #Stitchmagazine #embroidery #sewing #handmade
A beautiful example of an up-cycled school uniform, made into a cute teddy by Trisha using the Harley Bear pattern. She told me...

Love your patterns 😁 x"And we love seeing what you can do with our patterns! 😘 Thank you for sharing Trisha xx https://bit.ly/2ww28sW

This silk painting embroidery was designed and made this month for my brother who is celebrating a milestone birthday and early retirement by adopting a rare breed Manchester Terrier puppy. I've not tried thread painting before and this little design is rather cobbled together but I'm really keen to keep trying and hopefully improve my skills and technique. I wonder if anyone out there has tried this genre of sewing before and has any advice to share? ;) xx #embroidery #ManchesterTerrier #threadpainting

These simple bookmarks were made from a few fabric remnants and a little embroidery floss. They make sweet and useful handmade gifts for family at Christmas time but are so easy!.... You'll need 2 fabric remnants...a plain one for the front to embroider on, and a patterned one for the back. Cut them into 2 rectangles measuring 2 inches wide X 8 inches long and cut one end into a point (as in the photos) Choose a design for your embroidery...(my line drawings can be downloaded as images if you'd like to use them). To transfer them onto the fabric you need...
