Here it is! My first attempt at Brazilian Embroidery!
I left it in the hoop to take the pictures. And no, I haven't washed it, as you can see by the little blue pattern lines. I sort of have a problem with the thought of washing it even though it says you can. So I thought I'd better get some pictures before, just in case it gets ruined!
So what do I think about this technique? Well, I don't think it will become my "favorite", that's for sure. It's interesting and it goes pretty fast. I learned alot with this little kit. But.....the thread. It's so slippery and unravels so easily. It's not the easiest stuff to work with and I sort of like concentrating on the stitching, not the thread.
I have to say that I was very psyched about the fact that all the stitches used in this kit I had already done while doing Sharon B's TAST. It was really cool actually using what I learned!
I'm on to the crewel kit. In the stumpwork kit instructions, it said that you used crewel so I figured I'd better do that one first! Yes...I'm having lots and lots of fun!!
