Lisa's Doodle

What was your source for this embroidery project? Other What are you most proud of? This is the first time I've made something for anyone outside my family and I really enjoyed the collaboration; working together with my friend was very interesting, as I tried to respond positively to all her ideas, although she said I should always have the final say as it was my work. I'm also pleased with the way I responded to the challenge of the colours, which I was actually quite concerned about at the beginning but I ended up really enjoying. The fact that now this hanging has pride of place in my friend's house makes me very happy. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just go for it and don't be afraid to move out of your comfort zone, whether it be colours or techniques. You might surprise yourself!

You Can Make This

hippyastrum made Lisa's Doodle with:

  • I used fabrics from my own stash and also some provided by my friend which had memories for her - eg children's baby clothes
  • a favourite sweater
  • a friend's top
