Printed Linen + Crewel Embroidery ProjectMay 20, 2017 / byKristin Nicholas / Categories : Feeds
On July 29th, I am teaching a class called Fabric Printing and Decorative Embroidery. I've been working on a project to share with the class while I am at the Farmers Markets. It is exactly what the students will be doing.
First I printed the linen fabric with different sizes of circles in brown fabric paint.
I am treated each circle differently adding different embroidery stitches to the fabric. It is a fun project to do and something that is easily totable and easy to pick up and put down if interruptions happen.
Here are the different circles I have stitched.
Each of my stitched circles is a little different. They are small and it is easy to experiment with different stitches. I love this kind of stitching because it is improvisational and free and easy. It's also a great way to play with color.
I use my linen fabric (available on my website here) and 100% crewel wool which is also available on my website.
I also have a similar PATTERN AND KIT available on my website here. Check it out. The pattern is available as a PDF download for $13 here. The kit is available for $46 here. Makes a great project for summer stitching. Crewel is the perfect project to take with you anywhere this summer.
Hope to see some of you here at the farm this summer! Have a great weekend.
I'll be at Webs Tent Sale today from 10 to 5.
