As Red, White and Royal Blue is one of my favourite books ever, of course I had to do something for this momentous occasion. This being the day that Alex Claremont-Diaz (in the book) made his speech and history remembered. I couldn’t decide between the plain black design and the Pride flag design, so I…… Continue reading History, Huh?
I was finally able to sew the zip onto my embroidered pouch this week! I’m very proud of how neat it is, this is my first time sewing in a zip! I do still want to press it a little, just to neaten it up a bit, but I was too excited to wait! I…… Continue reading Zipped Up
I wanted to make Petra a backpack because long days adventuring need packs that don’t cause back injuries, and this boxy backpack is what I came up with. The base is reinforced with glue and a double layer of fabric to help keep the box shape. In my constant quest to add embroidery to everything…… Continue reading Adventuring Backpack
In an effort to make Petra an entire outfit that fits, I made her this pair of green overalls. She and I both love the sunflower embroidered onto this pocket (which is functional!). It’s very much in line with her gardener aesthetic! (We were going for the cover of Vogue here.) Then Petra saw this big…… Continue reading Sunflower
Finally…. ….after what feels like three years…. ….I have a Carry On badge! This book has been a favourite for a long time now, and I hit roadblocks multiple times while designing it, but now! All that has come to fruition! Huzzah! I tried a new-ish stitch for the rose in the centre, which I think…… Continue reading Three Years Later
In my time hanging out indoors over the last week, I’ve managed to stitch some final touches to this hoop…. ….so it is now finished! It’s very hard to get good detail stitching over felt, but you can sort of see that this is a Custard Cream biscuit! I also trimmed the tassels, which look…… Continue reading Finished 13 Hoop!
In between life, I’ve been making progress on the 13th Doctor hoop. I’m very happy with these tassels – I combined the coloured stripes in the tassels so they matched the size of the dark blue ones. I’ll trim them down when all the embroidery is done. Then I outlined…. ….and filled in the hands…… Continue reading Hoop Progress
….are what I’ve been embroidering recently on my 13th Doctor hoop. After extensive research, I figured out that the flower from series 11 episode 6 is likely a daffodil, hence the asymmetrical centre of the flower. I was originally going to do French knots for the gold dots on the bow tie, but then I…… Continue reading Flowers & Bow Ties & Scarves
I’ve made a lot of progress on the 13th Doctor hoop! I’ve completed one…. ….two…. ….three lines of text…. ….as well as started on the surrounds. Half-finished goggles here. I’m very happy with how flat and neat the satin stitch is on these, I usually have problems with it being uneven but this is great!…… Continue reading 13 Hoop
I've been making some small jars recently, to be 'filled' with jam and honey, which would be delicious on toast... The honey won't be that bright, and both the lids still need painting. I can't wait to glue the labels on! I also started this little embroidery, I'm not sure if it's going to be… Continue reading Project Roundup
