Morning, I hope you are all well, I hear you are bracing yourselves, ready for a cold snap from the return of 'The Beast from The East 2' I do hope it's not as bad as last time, so stay warm and safe. Today I am sharing a little embroidered piece, using the images from the Jungle Dreams Collection from Michelle. If you're going to the NEC this weekend, I hope you have a great time.
For this project you will need:
10'' Square of Calico
7'' or 8'' hoop
Clarity Light Wave or similar
Coloured Card and Matching Ribbon
Step 1: Choose the designs you would like to use and print them off, Choose a selection of threads.
Step 2: Mark the edge of of your hoop by finger pressing or placing in the hoop. Remove and transfer your design using the light panel or holding up against a window.
Step 3: Stitch your design, here I have used a lot french knots to add more texture, but the choice is yours.
Step 4: Trim a little fabric from around the edges, then roughly stitch the excess at the back. Make sure your design is pulled tight in the frame.
Step 5: Secure the ribbon hanger at the back to form a loop for hanging. Run glue all around the back of the frame and secure your card, coloured facing outwards. Place under a heavy book to ensure even adhesion. Once dry trim around the frame.
Here is the finished piece:
