Stupendous Stitching: Adventures in Surface Design »
InstructionsThis is a great course for just letting go of all the rules. You just let your materials talk to you and go with the moment. I had a LOT of fun with this piece.
Type of item: Home Decor
Style: Whimsical, Funky
The bacvkground is an orange-yellow batik. There are fuzzy yarns, metallic cords and stitching in a variety of colors and threads.
What was your inspiration?
The course itself - I watched the whole course before I started working on my piece. Not that you have to, for me that was best. And I just chose things already in my stash to play with.
What are you most proud of?
I haven't done any hand embroidery for years - more than I'd like to count! I really liked the way the embroidery adds to this piece.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Play! Have fun! There's nothing to work out in this course - no seams to match, no color-coordinating. This is a good bust loose and play project.
