Anyone following my blog now knows that the theme of the wedding is the Tree of Life.
This is what i am working on at the moment. This is on a 14 inch embroidery hoop, the backing is seeded cotton drill, the tree silhouette is on a self patterned brown fabric.
I ironed vlisofix on to the brown fabric, drew on my design, cut it out, and then pealed off the backing and ironed it onto the cream fabric.
I am now in the process of blanket stitching it all around with a shiny copper/gold/bronze embroidery thread.
When it is done i will be cutting out a piece of wadding to fit, turning the edges under and then i will be stitching the whole thing invisibly onto a large square cushion/pillow.
I maybe putting in other details, like beaded flowers, not sure yet. This is what i like about crafting something new. This will be my wedding present to Steph and Michael.
I am really enjoying the process.
