4th picture

25th June 2013

I decided to use my bright dyed fabric and yarn for my 4th square picture.

I ironed linen, velvet, calico and yarn onto Bondaweb then cut out 16 small squares. These were ironed onto a piece of linen.

Variegated thread and satin stitch were used to bind the edges. Then I just had fun free machining patterns on the squares.

After I had finished the postman came with 1 kilo of lavender!! The parcel smelled wonderful.
I made a lavender bag with some dyed embroidered muslin and silk ribbon.

This sachet can be placed in a drawer, on a coat hanger or hang on a hook in a bedroom.
Another item for the Craft Fair!


  1. I love the framed option - the colours look great with the broad white border.
