doodle stitchin'

8.03.2008

Doodle Stitching is a wonderfully inspiring book! I was inspired enough to try a bit of embroidery myself. Being 9pm on a Saturday evening, though, meant no quick trip to the craft store for embroidery thread or canvas. So I took around eight inches of leg off of MG's ripped corduroys and some leftover lace-weight yarn to start doodlin'. Not quite sure what this little doodle will end up as... maybe stretched over a frame, sewn into a small pillow, made into a little bag... any ideas?

i LOVE the way it turned out, jery! the design of the flower and the orange in it is oh so lovely! i think you should make it into a big pillow- use the embroidery as the center square on the front of a pillow and create a wide border around it with other fabric to extend the size of the pillow! (did that make any sense?)

from the angle you photographed it, I think of a stool cushion cover... or a toilet seat cover...

I'm picturing it in my house, in a frame, on the wall. Also, now I am tempted to buy this book!

On a side note: Do you know my address? ( :
