Stitchery!


One day all of a sudden I got the stitchery bug and immediately had to have supplies! I was fortunate enough to come across this amazing book, Sublime Stitching. It has lots of colorful pictures and information, which was great for me as a beginner, but would also be nice for someone more skilled who is just looking for cool patterns. In the back are tons and tons of patterns, it's a pretty good portion of the book! They iron transfer onto your fabric and can be used more than once. Here was my first attempt. The front looks pretty good, and the back is ridiculously messy. My first hankie from scratch! I did a simple straight stitch around the edges. Very pleased.
