It's all about beautiful butterflies, moths, dragonflies and insects in machine embroidery.
This is the first test stitch out on muslin. Thankfully my test went well.
My plan has been to color in the black outline of the floral elements of the designs with the Copic markers. Here is the results. I am going to have a lot of fun with this. :o) and a few metallic threads!
Once I laid some of the fabrics next to the embroidery, I totally disliked the effect. The "Cuzco" fabrics are too bright, too busy! Pretty fabrics, but just not for this project. I also really like the more subdued muslin instead of the snow white for the back ground of the embroideries.
So I ordered some new fabric !
Spring Meadows seems perfect for insects!
Now, on to the embroidery part! My favorite!
