Embroidery

Hey, Hey! I was taking lots of photos yesterday and thought I would snap a few of my latest project. Embroidery has been my new nightly project. I like to have a sit around project for the evenings or when I am waiting to pick a kid up from some activity, you know, something portable.


I decided to use some of my drawings from my new line of Bugapalooza fabric to play around with. I don't have an end project in mind. I might sew it in to a project or I might leave it in the hoop, haven't decided that one yet.

To transfer the design to my fabric, I used my new Friction pens that I got from my son for Christmas, thanks Fletch! They are super cool, made by pilot, and can be found in office stores. They erase with heat. I do notice a bit f a white line left after ironing but with the embroidery covering the lines up anyway, I think they are perfect for this. If you are curious, I posted a little video on instagram of the pen in action.


Once I figure out what I'm making, I'll be sure to post some photos.

Have a great day,

  1. Gosh your embroidery looks lovely Jennifer. So bright and happy. Those Frixon pens are fabulous aren't they. I use them all the time but only found out last week that the wee grey bit on the end rubs out the pen as well. Great pens
