Yesterday I started at my very first embroidery. It is with awe I’ve started on this one. The materials I’m using is linen thread on cotton. I find it has a lot less friction. Any tips out there? The inspiration is early medieval. I am considering fresh water pearls for eyes.
I’ve just said yes to be a part of a historical sewing challenge. I don’t think i’m getting to much done and need some inspiration to my projects.
The communities is called The Historical Sewing Fortnightly and can be found on facebook. Just follow my link.
The first Challenge I’ve enrolled myself in is the so called Squares, Rectangles and triangles.
So I sad down and thought. Looked in my old costume guide. And then it came to me. A flapper dress! I haven’t done any costumes from the modern period yet and this was my change to finally do so. I have a bunch of pale yellow chiffon fabric laying around and a pattern for the chemise to go under. I can fell this. So good!
I’s going to fell good to have my Toyota sewing machine up running again.
Here is some of photos for inspiration:
