Painting with Thread
This last week have been playing with free motion machine embroidery - or thread painting
Adding detail to fabric flowers with thread. A few for the online shop at Etsy , a few for the brick and mortar shop in Grandma's Attic. In some have used different shades of solid rayon thread, in others a variegated thread with a variety of shades on one spool. Adding a vintage button center to all and a pin on the back.
Then since so many people tell me they love hats but do not look good in hats, developed a couple of basic headband styles. Pin the flowers to the headbands - YES! a sassy fun headband. or so I think.
To the second style headband also adding embroidered fabric bead at the fabric-elastic connection - I think this just gives the head band a bit more kick.
Comments, suggestions as always welcome. Thanks.
