A Project A week 10: Embroidery hoops

After the t-shirt disaster and a few questions on my ability in sewing and whether it was worth carrying on, I decided to try something a bit different. On my trip to Hobbycraft Cardiff I picked up some lovely small embroidery hoops so I decided to embroider a piece of fabric and stick in the embroidery hoop.

To find a nice picture to embroider I looked on this blog, there is also a Flickr page which has tons of designs. I settled on some nice vintage looking flowers, and with vanishing fabric pen, drew onto my fabric:

I then used 3 strands of black embroidery cotton. After a couple of hours, this is what it looked like:

It looks fine, but you can still see the pen in some parts. Do I try to wash the fabric, or is it the black of the thread going to run on the fabric and ruin the whole thing?

Until next time,

Thank you for checking on me! We're fine- we felt it (largest I ever felt), but no damage for our area.
