Hearting Embroidery!


Yep, it is my new obsession right now people! I’m actually poorly as well, so I’ve been finishing this bird project. I based it off one of my art journal pages. Really like how he turned out. I love the gold thread I found, BUT it is hard to stitch with. It frays and you have to constantly pull all the threads before tying it off. This puts a lot of tension on the fabric.

I also found this Button Factory box I got a couple of years ago while I was tidying my room. I have some ideas for embroidering fabric buttons πŸ™‚

I prefer this size hoop as it is easier to work with, although the little ones are really cute when finished. Being ill is boring, I am off to sleep some more and hopefully get rid of this cold so then I start a new hoop…

    The bird is a wonderful success. You must be very pleased with it. So gold thread is as challenging to work with as gold ink then. Good to know for if I ever decide to pursue sewing beyond minor clothing repairs and making my kids sock monsters.

    • Thanks! Yeah, even though the gold is lovely and reflects the light, it is very frustrating. I only used a little bit because of that. Need to think of a new idea to try out new stitches I think πŸ˜€

    That gold is beautiful. I just may have to try embroidery. I would probably repeatedly poke myself though.

  4. ohhh. That project is really nice. Thanks for sharing!

    Very creative. How did you get started in this type of art?

    • Thank you for your comment! I’ve been interested in sewing and textitles for ages but wanted to try embroidery so when I saw some hoops in a local craft shop I got a couple and just gave it a go. I’ve improved really quickly which is partly why I enjoy it so much I think. I like to take on a challenege too, so I just sketched an idea out and started to stitch πŸ™‚
