I yet again participated in the Ongoing Wish Swap and made a claim for kittykill for a hoopla she had pinned. It was my first time using a water soluble marker to trace my pattern to the fabric and I was so happy with how easy it was! I stitched up the gorgeous vintage May Pole with birds and flowers. Then I rinsed it out to get rid of the pattern.
This is what happened:
well I was bit upset. I have never had thread bleed like that. All that work stitching down the tubes. Not to mention I was supposed to be sending out this package in like two days!
So I went back to stalking Pinterest to find some ideas cause I knew I wouldn't have time to do an entire large embroidery project. I ended up sending her the wrap bracelets (posted last week) that were already finished along with a smaller hoop and a felt bunny glasses case.
I am not as happy with this hoop. I am not sure why it looks off to me... It's a sassy vintage bird pattern I had pinned.
I do quite like the way the glasses case turned out though. I decided to use brown felt for the bunny since it's close to Easter and chocolate bunnies are everywhere!
I hope the package was liked and I learned a lesson. I will test all thread to make sure it doesn't bleed before ruining another project!
