I have been a little obsessed with embroidery lately, it’s quite addictive actually and I find it really relaxing in bed while watching movies at the end of the day.
So I thought I’d show you what I’ve been up to ^_^
This was the piece that started it all again, I bought this handkerchief out of desperation on a day when I had run out of tissues XD So I thought it could use some jazzing up!
I pretty much used this to test out all of the stitches I already knew and get myself back into the swing of things.
I really enjoyed doing the roses, I want to try doing more like this until I get the stitch perfect!
Next I tried a more complicated shape but with a simpler stitch.
I really love how this one turned out!
It’s quite hard to tell but there are actually 2 shades of pink thread used to give it more depth. Next time I’ll use colours with a more pronounced difference so they stand out more.
Next it was cupcake time!
I also made another one in between here which had a large rose on it… but I think it must have fallen out of my bag somewhere because after turning the house upside down I can’t find it anywhere 🙁
This is the last out of the bunch I’ve done so far, after all of these handkerchiefs I think I’m ready to move on to something bigger and more spectacular.
James’ Christmas present this year was actually completely embroidered too but I’m still not finished it yet so that can be for another post haha!
Have you guys ever tried embroidery before? What do you think my next project should be? I’m thinking maybe a cardigan or something like that ^_^
