This is the blog of a constant crafter - a 'showcase' for some of the things I make, some hints for crafting & recylcing - lots of photos and some words. I hope it will inspire.

Embroidery

Also for granddaughter is the current sewing project - 1950's pattern, dress, bonnet and bloomers. Found some 'winsella' weave cotton at Spotlight (Rockdale) in mint green and off-white, the dress & sun-bonnet are embroidered with daisy flowers, lots of lace and really pretty. The bloomers will have frills across the behind. So far I've almost finished the flowers on the bonnet, using dull blues and greens and making bullion stitch 'grubs' for petals & leaves. This will give the embroidery a heavier, more vintage look than if I used 'lazy-daisy' stitches - but it takes much longer to work.
