Sorry I've been MIA in blog land for almost a week!! I've started up school again and my camera broke, so my blogging grove has been jumbled up. But, I'm back and have two adorable embroidery projects to share!
Embroidering is my new favorite craft of the moment. It all started with seeing this cute project on pinterest:
The project originally came from the blog Freckled Nest. Head over there for a more in depth tutorial.
Basically, all I did was arrange a cute pattern of buttons (the heart button came as a gift from Button Mad and all the others were flea market finds) and then drew out guide lines for their stems.
I just used the most basic stitch which was a good idea for my first embroidery project!! Not super straight. Let's just say there is a slight breeze....I still think it turned out so cute!
The second project was also a copy cat. Here is the inspiration from Sidereal Day:
I started by free-hand drawing the stems and then stitched them using a chain stitch.
I cut out a whole bunch of little circles made out of felt.
And then stitched them on using a cross in the middle of each flower using yellow embroidery floss.
And that was all! Easy peasy stuff, but looks so cute!
Both of the projects are hanging up on the side of my desk in my new dorm room! (I'll share pics of that...at some point)
I think I'm addicted to embroidery now!!! There will probably be more projects coming soon!!
I'll be sharing this with all the link parties in my header including Today's Creative Blog, Serenity Now, and Christina's Adventures
