Anyways, if you check out that first link, it's to Lisa Johnson's blog and you can see that she was at the Marvy booth at CHA the whole time. She was showcasing their new Fabric Paint Pens and we got to decorate canvas bags with them using her Flower Garden set. That inspired me to do something similar.
TADA!I used the stamp as a template to embroider a few things. I've NEVER done this before, cross sticth, yes, but embroider, no. Lisa's design TOTALLY lends itself to it though.
I first embroidered my digital camera case. I liked the case but didn't like the lettering on it so I thought I'd cover it up. I stamped the flower with white craft ink and the threads eventually covered it all up. What do you think? Not bad for my first time, no? It was kinda hard b/c the fabric was stretchy and if you pulled to hard, you squished the design. You can tell I'm not that consistent but I got the hang of it for the next project.
This was for a canvas bag for my MIL for her to take to doctor's visits. See, I improved!! :) I was going to do a lot more but my hand started hurting so I figured simple was better :P.
Thanks for looking!
