Soluble Fabric Results

9th May 2015

After rinsing the stitching on soluble film...


.....quite pleased with this....


.....only one small hole!


Pinned onto a board with a bugle bead holding the embroidery away from board....


......I pinned it onto my notice board and later in the day there was a shadow....


.....pleased with the result, especially as it was my first attempt, but the board was wrong as it didn't hold the pins firmly!!

>>>>>>>>>>

Remember my £1 bargain....



.....it now looks like this....

.....used my indigo dyed calico, wadding, lace and indigo dyed yarn....


...could be a photo album or sketchbook.....

....took ages but am pleased with the result!

>>>>>>>>>

Prepared this for a bowl, hopefully will stitch tomorrow....


....flower shapes cut from organza and silver 'paper'  recycled from a bouquet using my soldering iron....

....fingers crossed it works!

One of my secret projects, a gift for a family, using tracings from their hands......


...I used split stitch in 3 shades.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend....
