The fabric is 30 count Danico linen and the threads used were Chameleon Perle 8 in a soft lavender pink shade. The top edging on the bag is a Danish picot edge hidden behind the ribbon is hem stitching which the ribbon has been threaded through. The heart is edged with reverse chain stitch and has the pulled thread Honeycomb stitch in the centre. Tiny bought ribbon roses finished it off. Here is a photo of the detail.
She will be coming in this afternoon for our stitching hour together... we are at present working on Rabbits which will be used as slips on a piece of embroidery. we have printed a rabbit picture for each of us onto fabric using the computer and specially backed fabric sheets. This is an easy method of getting a design specially for an animal as you can see how the fur is lying and follow that with your stitching. Here is my rabbit I should finish his head today and add a Turkey Stitch tail. Size it is just an inch and a half tall.
Do you remember my little hedgehog ? he was stitched by the same method.
Another rabbit is about to start its travels again...... Lttle Bunny is being posted off today and as there were only 3 request for him I did not draw one name but each name in turn to determine which way it will travel so coming first to Gracie, then on to Annie and lastly to Lelia who said she will blog post it again. As I have no idea where all the American states are am not sure if its going to criss cross the country or not. Thanks to Annette of California Stitcher there are threads with the chart and I have added the addresses for forwarding on. Enjoy stitching it.
