Tags and experimenting with my embellisher.

 30th January 2021

More tags, one per week, theme was heart.

I wove through hessian for the background and used some of my ice dyed fabric for the heart.

Tag 3 was scraps...

...Tag 4 was fly stitch...

...Tag 5 cross, used cross stitch to attach.

I have kept the tags fairly simple as my tags are quite small, I have a box bought a few years ago that I need to use!!!


I used felt as my base and embellished man made fabric from my stash, the lower part of the photo shows the fabric before embellishing.... embellished organza over the top...

...then more man made embellished...

....the result, think I will enhance details using free machine embroidery.

I had some handmade felt which again I embellished with a polyester scarf and added hand dyed scrim for the flowers, only embellishing the centre for added texture, wool for the stem and leaves ready for machine embroidery.

Another small project using hand dyed fabrics, a work in progress, I am fast running out of embroidery threads!!! 


Last but not least my fantastic amaryllis bought a week before Christmas, amazing because it has 3 stems, these beautiful flowers and another bud not yet opened! I cannot believe all this has come from I bulb, it really has cheered me up this week.

Hope you are all keeping well, I am still finding this lockdown difficult and missing my little people and family. One day soon fingers crossed x
