A couple of weeks ago on an Inspiration Sunday – I talked about a book that my friend hand leant me that featured traditional embroidery designs. I showed a couple of pictures from a book about traditional embroidery that my friend, Anna loaned me, and I mentioned that I might be digitizing some of them in the near future.
Well – the future has arrived! Today I took the rose sketch design into my little computer and digitized it as a triple stitch design.
I think what prompted me to work on this design is the impending demise of my rose t-shirt (one of my favorites). I was wearing it the other day and noticed two small holes right in the front of the t-shirt. Dang! I love that shirt. it’s the perfect weight and the rose graphic is simple and bold.
Then I realized the my rose t-shirt looked a lot like the rose design I spotted in Anna’s book. Perhaps I could create something similar?
I think this design actually turned out quite well. I am wondering if you could purchase thicker, more decorative thread for the stitching to make the appliqué look more ornate. With my test stitching looking good – I may just have to remake my beloved t-shirt.
