I did two shots with different lighting so you could get a better idea. Now this can be used as an embellishment by just tacking down the center and leaving the wings loose. It can also be stitched around with invisible thread to fully sew it down. Or it could be pinned on a headband or.....well you get the idea. You are only limited by how far outside the box you can think. Cool huh?
Oops! The above was a mistake! I figured out MY mistake and the designs work fine. (see this post.)
But on to happier things! Today I decided to embroider a cute little teacup that I got free from Embroidery Library. They are a great place to get embroidery designs. This one happened to be free, but I have bought a number of designs from them and they have all stitched out beautifully (as long as I didn't mess it up.)
So here is the finished product, still in the hoop
I should have printed off the color change sheet before I started because my machine substitutes strange colors. As I was stitching out the first color (pink here) I went to the site to look. Oops, it was supposed to be a medium taupe. Still, l like how it came out.
Did you see that I now have a blog button that you can grab and add to your blog? Check the sidebar on the right, it is right under followers.
