Felt Embroidery, July Larkspur and Chickadee
Some felt needlebooks I've been working on this week. I really like embroidering on felt. The floss and stitches show up so nicely on the felt fabric and it's easy to work with. Felt comes in great colors too.
A bit of progress on my July Larkspur cross stitch design. The design has some French knots and straight stitching to vary the design a bit. I like to add different types of stitches to designs. I'm looking forward to when it's finished so I can make a new needlebook out of it with some nice purple and lavender fabrics.
I finished my little chickadee into a zip pouch. I was excited to put a row of patchwork squares on the front, but it ended up on the bottom after I added my gusset. I should have put the patchwork strip above the plain strip. Not great planning, but will definitely remember the next time I try to do that :) Hope you have a nice weekend. Sunny and spring-like here, but wishing for rainy snow or winter weather at all would be nice.
