Sew Deadly – Issue 32

Marcy’s Musings

Week before last, I posted a jack-o-lantern pattern for you. If you’ll recall, my printer was acting weird, so my pumpkin came out looking rather varigated. Well, I made the pumpkin using a varigated orange thread, and here it is as part of a greeting card. What do you think? I haven’t written anything on the card yet because I’m not sure whether I’ll send it out or simply use the card as a decoration. I think having the card in front of the black cat letter holder is a nice touch, don’t you?

 

 

 

I made ribbon roses on this tote bag to the right to give you an idea of how I went about making Vera’s and my evening bags for the masquerade ball in THREAD RECKONING. The satin ribbon I used was on the large side, making it a little tough to work with, but I think the tote turned out okay. With the purses for the masquerade ball, the entire front of the fabric was covered with ribbon spider-web roses with a few leaves added here and there.

So have you started or completed any embroidery projects lately? If so, share them with me!
