TAST 70,72 Embroidery

Take a stitch Tuesday 70 - crested chain stitch.
I've used some vintage gingham and dyed laces. Attached to the vintage suspender is a scrap of yellow vintage fabric and lace attached with a French knot. The patch of gingham is attached with running stitch and there are more French knots on the yellow trim.
I didn't do tast 71 this time but I have done it before, see here

Take a stitch Tuesday 72 - wrapped coral stitch.
I was having a spot of bother with this to start with, I kept putting the thread the wrong way round. I've disguised it with French knots [with long stalks] in the yellow thread. Vintage fabric and dyed laces.

This one was not for tast but for the pastel book. The background fabric is handpainted/stamped. Four different dyed laces with running stitches on the narrow yellow lace in two colours. French knots. The buttons were created with art work and clear buttons.

  1. That's the most creative use of a suspender I have seen in a long time. Oh, I used to struggle with them when I was a little girl and wore prickly, horrid wool stockings! The gingham also brings out memories of long ago...

    1. They bring back memories for me too, the gingham of school although we didn't have pretty pink. And the suspenders - yuk, I remember wearing them although I think tights had been introduced, just not in our house.

  2. I love the combination of stitching with the laces and gingham - so pretty!

  3. Oh, yellow and pink! Reminds me of the summer frocks I used to wear as a kid and all those wonderful summer memories, sand, sea, ice cream, freckles.

    1. Well I never thought of freckles until you mentioned them...
