My project for this week has been an embroidered card. I really never thought I could create embroidery in a timely or pleasant looking manner, and thought doing any type of hand sewing/stitching was too difficult. But have lately recently changed my mind after doing a few projects featuring hand embroidery. I have mainly been embroidering on felt. But somewhere in my many pinterest posts I came across embroidery on card and thought it looked great. I thought it would be great for birthday cards, so here is my first attempt for my niece’s third birthday:

I recently found this book through booktopia.com, which I ordered and received very quickly. The book also comes with a CD, so you can put the images on your computer and resize etc and print out.

I also had picked up these embroidery threads from Big W to use. IMG_0788

I selected my image from the CD and inserted and resized in Word, then printed. Next I used tear-away stabiliser and traced the image I printed.
