Today was a day for stitching. First I had to design the stitching pattern. I wanted the water portion to look like waves but done in flourishes so I drew out a pattern when I was having my cereal this morning.
Next I had to map out the actual purse on the fabric
then transfer the stitching design. I got out my trusty transfer pen new in the package and it was dried out!!! So I drew it freehand on the batting.
Then stitched. It always amazed me the difference after it is stitched. I used a green metallic thread in the bobbin and I like how it shimmers on the bluegreen.
Here is a pic of the back where you can see the stitching.
Hope my client likes it too. I did a little stitching on the flap portion, but don't like the line of dark pink. It will be coming out. Think I may stick to gold, pastel metallic lavendar and pinks. Now I have to stitch out more fish but tomorrow is the Quinlan doll show and I am going! After the fish are stitched, I'll be adding some colorful fibers to define the "waves" a bit.
