Scraps

20170818_184255.jpg

Sometimes I feel a bit mad when I save scraps from what I’m sewing. But I loved this color so much! It’s the leftovers from the pants I made from curtains (here  although I haven’t got a photo yet of the finished pants:P)

I wanted to do embroidery and at first thought I’d make a pocket for the pants, that’s the one to the right. From the even smaller scraps I made two little bags to fill with lavender since I have some on my balcony.

20160801_174748.jpgFor some reason I’ve had the idea that embroidering from a pattern is boring and unsatisfying. As it happens, I ‘d ran out of ideas and wanted something easy to do, so I thought I’d try this cute vintage pattern I’d found in a thrift shop, and bought mainly for the yarn.

Was I wrong! It’s really challenging, maninly because it’s so hard to keep track of the threads in the fabric, I keep making mistakes and taking up stitches. And it’s SLOW.

All my respect to those of you who do this a lot!

Have no idea how long this will take to finish.
