This week’s stitching also comes from urban threads. This week, I wanted to try not using white muslin so I picked up this brown felt and I used these printable dissolving sticky fabrics to print my image and then stuck it on the felt and started stitching:
when I was done, i cut off all the non-stitched sections.
and then put it in a bowl of water:
and here we go:
like magic. however, it wasn’t fun to stitch through it and i didn’t end up liking the darker fabric. (just like in my art journaling, apparently i like white backgrounds everywhere.)
I used satin stitch, french knots, star stitch, chain stitch and back stitch on this one. The little word is hope.
