Lace edge

This is a sample of machine embroidery on transfer printed polycotton which I have made into a small ‘cushion’ by adding a machine embroidered lace edge using dissolvable fabric. It really small, about 6x4 inches. A have made a few edges like this but I find it quite hard work, although the end result is quite pretty. I did a bit of hand stitching, Cretan, and a small area using a thicker thread on the bobbin.

There is an interesting post here about how to add lettering using bleach;its an interesting blog in general.
If you have not seen this video about the obsession of crafting do have a look for a really good chuckle.
My latest shop items can be seen here.
