I have become a fan of embroidery work. I taught basic embroidery to my sewing club girls to help them stitch in nice straight lines with evenly spaced stitches. Since then I have made a few more artistic embroideries. The first one is based off a pattern I showed in my Owl post. The second one shows how I take a drawing and transfer it into embroidery. In the second one my drawing is inspired by a artist from Scotland that I found and etsy and couldn't seem to locate again. opps.
Now a work in progress:
paper drawing with the hoop
muslin in the hoop on top of the inked image
traced the image onto the muslin with a fine tip sharpie
top of hoop. image inked, reversed and ready to start stitching
more to come later
