Week 2!





I am a little behind in Hand Stitched Class.
I finished hand sewing the centre medallion. I redid it because I wasn't happy with my points and the size and spacing of my stitches. I couldn't get my points right the second time so I made a modification. I added the bubbles on the end.
I am really happy with it.
I haven't trimmed the yellow border yet because I want to have a little bit extra in case it frays when I'm doing my hand stitching on the white border.

That brings me up to date on week one.

I have only completed one project from week two so far.

It's a head band. It was so quick so I will definitely be making more in many different colours and patterns.
I like that the elastic makes it gather just a little bit.

I have loved looking at everyones projects on the flickr group. There is some serious talent in this class!

    1. Thankyou. The print was a gift and I have been saving it for something special. I think this is pretty special.

  3. Very nice! Your modification on the blossom turned out great and it's a good idea not to trim the outer border because mine is fraying a bit.
