Loving Yellow and Some New EmbroideriesJune 19, 2017 / byKristin Nicholas / Categories : Feeds
One of the most famous uses of yellow in interiors is at Giverny.
And then there is of course Nancy Lancaster's Yellow Room.
I know most people are rather colorphobic and don't have the nerve to paint an entire room yellow. Using yellow as an accent color is a great way to add some pops of fun color to any space. Like pillows or a bright chair.
I've been working on two new yellow embroidered pieces. They both began as plain yellow linen fabric. I printed the circle and oval designs on the linen with fabric paint and heat set them. These simple shapes are perfect for embellishing with embroidery.
Here is the first one - Printed with ovals and circles in green, hot pink, and red. My original idea was to fill the circles and ovals with lots of different stitches. When I finished outlining the shapes, I decided that the piece would stand on its own without any more stitching. Now to sew it into something.
For the second piece, I printed several different sizes of circles in brown. Each circle was decorated with a variety of embroidery stitches in bright colors. This was a really fun project to work on and I'm kind of sorry it is done.
Here are some close-ups of some of the circles. I used a variety of stitches.
These two pieces are samples for my upcoming Fabric Printing and Crewel Embroidery Creative Retreat happening July 29th. There are still a few spaces available for that retreat. More info here.

This fun little dress is (another) Safari Raglan, which is a pattern I am pretty obsessed with at the moment for sewing up quick little dresses and shirts for edison. If it looks familiar you’re pretty spot on, my first ever safari raglan was made up in the same main fabric, hehe. I just don’t really have many knits in my stash that are fun and not like… this ugly blue and this weird purple, and a lot of my sewing is spur of the moment with whatever I have in my stash.read more
