Still Sewing

I have carried on with the sewing theme and tried circles this time. I love the effect it has given. I can't believe I had all these templates hidden away without being used. If you haven't tried it before then give it a go. The circles are on the background paper for the next canvas will post a picture of it when its finished.

I decided to have a look at what I had hidden away in the craft room today to try to get some ideas and found some sewing templates from Bazzill Basics Paper. I used part of one to join the circle of card to the background paper of this canvas and I am very pleased with the end result. After pricking the part of the pattern I wanted directly onto the paper and card I have used normal black thread doubled and followed the dots using back stitch. It does take time but well worth it.

Another small canvas.

This is the second canvas I have made using the 15cmx15cm size. I have used the orange and yellow ribbons again as they are such lovely bright colours. I have added another 9cmx9cm black and white photo to show how it would look. The ribbons are tied around a lolly stick and then with using some invisable thread I have sewn it to the paper. As it is a box style canvas it is easy to hang on the wall.
