TAST 67


I am taking part in the 30 days creativity challenge, for the month of June and this is day 4.
This is also for the stitcher's challenge on Pintangle - Take a Stitch Tuesday
The stitch for Tast 67 is fancy hem stitch [the line almost in the middle vertical and the horizontal  line between fabrics]. There are a couple of other stitches, variations of running stitch and French knots.
The flowery fabric is vintage fabric which my mother used when I was knee high to a grasshopper. The fabric above it is one I created with transfer paints. This is done by painting transfer paints onto paper then transferring the paint from the paper to fabric with an iron or heat press. The white circles are where I masked areas to keep them the original fabric colour which was white. I used the sticky paper reinforcements to do this but any paper could be used.

  1. Again you have used a good combination of fabric for your embroidery. The running stitches, though simple, add a new dimension. Isn't the Fancy Hem a neat stitch?
