A few weeks ago, I went to a craft fair, and found so many handcrafted embroidery. I did buy a few things. But it gave me inspiration to try some embroidery myself. I'm more into cross stitch and have limited experience with embroidery. but I think I did ok. here are some pics of a scissor case I made. it took about a week. the embroidery took ages to stitch. it didn't look like the original pattern as I changed some things because I didn't have the confidence to do it. I added Palestrina stitch on the outer edges of the case. I also made a matching fob to go with it. the fob was very hard to make, but I got there in the end, more or less. :o)
This is a going to be a gift for my lovely friend Heidi, she already knows about it so its ok to show the case here.
The original pattern is from Classic Embroidery magazine. hope you like what I have made.
enjoy the pics.
luv from olga.
