I copied these designs from Molly Makes Magazine.
This is my first attempt at embroidery!
I looked at the designs and drew them on my fabric with a water soluble fabric pen.
This is the perfect craft to do while I am watching my almost three year old outside in the garden. She often plays for hours and although I try to play with her, I end up sitting on an old wicker chair, watching her.
I feel like a mother from the old days when I embroider.
I like to pretend it’s the 1930’s.
All I need is an old vintage apron on and I am good to go!
I have no idea what to do with these embroideries which are on a linen square. Maybe a pillow…
I always thought of embroidery as being something too time consuming to get into. I think I could have made two dresses in the time it took to make these, but there is something so calming about embroidering. It seems it is a good time to meditate on things or pray.
