I love hand emboridery, espeically the ones just left in the embroidery hoops.
Like this on found here
Or this one at Apartment Therapy
But this one really struck me (it's a monogram, maybe that's why)
or maybe it's the bazillions of french knots!
So I am trying something a little similar but different.
I am taking this fabric (green polka dots -what could be better!)
And I will be adding a bazillion french knots into each of the dots.
No monogram, just lots of practice and hopefully something very cool at the end.
Look at that little guy!
And it works much better than the current wadded up and tangled mess in a ziplock bag!
So here is my progress so far.
Remember I am a beginner...
Now really close
I am really hoping this will look pretty cool once it's finished.
If not, I will probably become a french knot expert at least.
Oh, and these little cuties arrived in my mailbox today.
My own labels from Sweetwater.
I LOVE their stuff!
