Well, it’s been a while since I’ve included any pictures, so here is what I’ve been working on lately:
I used to sew more when I was growing up, but haven’t done it so much in the past few years.
I’ve been seeing it a lot lately online and in magazines, though, so had been wanting to give it a try again. I had to buy a couple of supplies like an embroidery hoop, but for the most part I still had everything I needed to start up again. Including fabric from the days when I collected thrift-store-striped-polyester-old-lady-button-down-pocket-t- shirts.
Manda let me take a gander at her new sewing books (from the Sublime Stitching family) for some inspiration, but I ended up finding the image for my first project online.
This time around I’m also learning some actual stitches vs. simply outlining everything with dotted-line stitches. It still needs some work, but I’m excited with the results so far.
I’ll be sure to post some better pics once I’m actually done.
