This time I want to document the process somehow...
(you ought to choose the large pictures to see the details)
I try to show different stitches and combinations with the embellisher.
I noticed by the way that if you use linen as a background for the embellisher you get rather coarse details... it is better - I think at least for my technique- to continue using felted organza.
The good part of it is that it's so easy to stitch on it. The needle just slides through!!
Nevertheless I'm having my fun here! I will use it for teaching purposes and it would be a beautiful piece for a child's room...
I'm also planning how to stitch the background. I began doing a kind of paisley with the sewing machine and a narrow zigzag (you can see this on the first picture). Because of the piece being a sampler, I will try different possibilities on it.
