This week I finished my final piece for my Machine Embroidery and I am thrilled with it. The downside to it is that it has to be handed in, along with the mountain of paperwork and samples that go with it and I probably wont see it again until June (after the verifier has been and marked us all-eek!!). I really really want to list it for sale on my Folksy shop (well, actually, I wanted to keep it, but his lordship pointed out that I will be carrying a baby nappy bag for a while and it would just sit looking pretty but unused...).
Anyway, I really wanted to share it's journey of construction with you all!
Working the machine embroidered sand...long process!
Skip forward a few hours and there's layered and embroidered sea and an appliqued brolly, deck chair and bucket...it's coming together!
A sand castle and a spade-quite fiddly to embroider neatly, but I managed it
Phew! A finished panel of embroidery-drawing with a needle is NOT easy or quick!
A bag front appears....
Followed by a large zipped pocket and a funky lining!
All assembled and enjoying the sunshine!
Fingers crossed for a good grade!!
