Woven wheels and chipettes!


Continuing on with my embroidery practice stitches, here are three woven wheels I tried. Now these are fun to make!!! I want to make more...but I am glad I am just doing a silly practice cloth, because I would have no idea how to incorporate them into anything! I still need to think about that a while. But...ain't they cute!! The one is solid white, and then one is dark and light pink and the blue one actually has light green in it. This stitch inspiration was directed by Sharon over at Pin Tangle, with her TAST (Take a Stitch Tuesday). Thanks Sharon, for your awesome blog! If anyone wants to follow along with weekly stitch challenges, feel free. I'm gonna try, as best I can.

Update a few minutes later: Looks like I did a sort of modified stitch from what Sharon was doing. She is doing a WHIPPED now I have to try this other technique, which is very similar, but has a completely different look to it. I had gone to MY stitch book, and followed what it had in it, which wasn't the correct thing. I will be back.

My granddaughter likes Alvin and the Chipmunks and the Chipettes. I found a line drawing of them and I used my computer screen as a light box to hold the paper they were printed on behind the fabric and traced with a pencil. It works. So I am adding them in to the crazy scene! Next I will have to add something from Star Wars for my grandson, and add the date, for sure. I was thinking of having some tags made up with "Made By Julie" on them to sew on as well...and make a fabric sampler book. This will be my famous 1st page, of course!!! LOL.

Mr Bunny is getting ready for Easter amongst the marigolds!!!

xoxo- Julie

Your embroidery looks like so much fun Julie. Marigolds at Easter sounds foreign to me. You definitely live in another world.

If you did Darth Maul in embroidery, that would be AMAZING!

Julie said...

NoT SO Angry- OMG! I am constantly telling my grandson (Darth Maul is his fav character) that he is a DEVIL!!! This would be interesting though, if I could pull it off!!! :)

Julie, you really have the heartfelt patience to stitch your embroidery.
These little white, blue and pink blooms really sweet. They signify that Spring is coming!
