Wristlets…just begging for embroidery!
A few days back I discovered a “new to me” blog, Oh Fransson. There I watched a few daily wristlets being created and my mind started whirling…thinking of how I could use these wristlets as canvases for embroidery.
I bought Elizabeth’s pattern and spent some time digging in my fabric stash. Her pattern is wonderful! Pages of a combination pattern/tutorial. The directions are clear and easy to follow. (Which I cannot blog here, you will have to buy the pattern. No affiliation, no profit for me, just an honest consumer. Although…always willing to accept a kickback…lol)
I just couldn’t decide which style of her 3 to create, so I am trying one of each in the larger sizes. I followed her directions, cut out the solid colored fabric for the wristlets, then stared at it a bit and decided I needed to mix it up a little.
I spliced other fabric onto the main bodies and created a second color ‘base’ for each wristlet.
Each wristlet has been prepped for finishing. The lining, interlining, interfacing, main fabric has all been correlated. The pocket is sewn in place in the lining, the zippers are prepped, the straps are ready and waiting. Now…all they need are some embroidery embellishments.
I see an elf watering these flowers. What do you see here? Any ideas?
I see maybe…a…fairy touching the flowers here. What do you see? Suggestions?
Maybe a retro cat? Ideas?
I am at a stopping point now. Wondering what to add to these cute little bags.
What do you think?
Your life needs fun. Go ahead, have some fun!
