I think the designs in the book are really cute and it made embroidery actually appeal to me which it has never done before! So this after noon I dug out some scrap fabric (which I bought and used for a moth net) and my mum's embroidery threads. I drew onto the fabric in biro (not a good idea) so when my pen slipped I couldn't correct it so I had to stitch over it. However I think the patterns have come out not so bad!
Heres what I did this afternoon, I went for an under the sea theme!
And here is each motif one at a time....
This one is definitely my favourite, the octopus is just so cute :D I like the bubbles too.
I did use two different shades of aqua in this jellyfish but it doesn't show up very well... note to self use more contrasting threads!
Finally the star fish!
I really enjoyed doing this today and it was definitely a nice little break from all the crochet I have been doing!
