Just wanted to share this little project I whipped up this weekend. I brought the linen and some crewel wool with me to the laundrymat to keep me busy while I was waiting for the machines to do their thing. I sketched it out and stitched up the trees and grass during the wash cycle, then decided it needed a little lamb while the dryers were running.
And a couple of detail shots:
At first, I made the sheep’s body with a double layer of satin stitch, but it just didn’t look right. I think the french knot curls lood adorable, and since I layered the french knots on top of two layers of satin stitch it really stands out and has a great texture. Now I just need to know what to do with it! I’s about 4″x6″, so maybe a little pouch? a pin cushion? I don’t know do you have any suggestions?
