I dug out this old embroidery design for a house and tulips and decided that I wanted to add some fabric
I made a pattern of the house using my light box, paper and a pencil
I do have a bunch a pre-Mistyfused fabrics from my Hopscotch line
Let the fun begin! This is a good start!
And the tulips, but the tulip on the left might need some tweaking
Now making a pattern for the landscape
I eye balled the stems, chimney and front door. Then trimmed the edges so they would be free from threads
In hindsight, I should have cut the thread ends before I fused the back, so they wouldn’t show through. So I cut them and didn’t lose much of the web, fortunately
Working with white fabric, I need to have a really clean iron, so I use Dryer Sheets
It didn’t look like there was this much gunk, but apparently there was! Then I slide my iron over a scrap piece of fabric to remove the residue
I pressed this to a piece of white wool blended felt and trimmed the edges all around
I pinned the house and white felt to a piece of pink wool blended felt. Now it’s ready for some fun embroidery!
Let the fun begin!
