Stupendous Stitching Sampler

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Letting go of perfection and creating on the fly. I also love that this piece can hang in any position - so I virtually have 4 pictures with one piece. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I had trouble with the fabric pulling inward when using my machine decorative stitches. It gave the piece a little more texture, which was OK. I am planning to use a different stabilizer next time or 2 layers of the recommended stabilizer to see if that eliminates the problem.

What you will need

  • Cotton batik
  • various threads
  • decorative stitches (machine and hand)
  • beads
