A Few Stitches by Christine Bedford

 

Hi everyone, Chris here, I have one more make for this month's 'A Stitch In Time’ theme at The Artistic Stamper.  

 I am staying with flowers - this time Debs Smith's Big Flowers and Quotes set. 

I used to do a lot of Needle Felting a few years ago, now it is a once in a while activity, but when I saw this big flower I just had to use it.

I started by stamping it onto a square of hessian like fabric.

I had to enlist hubby's help for some of my photos 

Next came the start of my Mug Rug - Using a variety of different greens

If you have ever done needle felting you will know it's best to keep your fingers out of the way!

Once I had everything ready I stamped the flower again so that I could see where to sew the stamens

I used a gold thread which was quite difficult to sew but worth it for the shimmery effect!

I considered blanket stitching the edges but must admit to like this fluffy finish!


Here is my Mug Rug all ready for use later!

It has been a pleasure to be here at The Artistic Stamper and to practice my stitching once again.

 Thanks for looking, Chris
