Last embroidery class I went to I made fabric swatches using scraps stuck to a base of interfacing with bondaweb, and then sewn over. The one I produced in class I wasn’t too keen on as it was green and red and looked way too Christmassy for my taste – see previous post ranting about seasonal stuff.
So when I got home I had another go – using wool, ribbon, feathers and fabric from my own stash – and whipped up something a bit funkier. The resulting swatch of fabric I made into a needlecase.
It’s not the most awesome thing in the world, but of the items that I’ve made so far on my course it’s the one I’m happiest about.
