Miss S's gift for Grandma, last Christmas
Miss S, my seven year-old is starting to take an interest in sewing and embroidery. She is also obsessed with the winged heart motif and I find it doodled all over pieces of scrap paper everywhere in the house!
So, it was a logical progression to start a sewing kit for her for Christmas, and the design for this embroidered pin cushion was easy to choose.
I used an 18pt linen embroidery fabric in a shade of oatmeal and drew the design, tracing through a light-source from a print-out behind. I used the same image as Mr Muck's birthday card (see post here).
I then filled in some areas with fabric paint (I use Pebeo fabric paints - just iron when they are dry and they're colourfast). I then went over the outlines using a combination of split stitch and long-stitch embroidery.
Now to source the other parts of the kit...
