Embroidery fun!

My first attempt at non-cross stitch embroidery!

Presenting chain-stitched Ellie!

I drew the elephant one day and decided I liked him so much I wanted to try embroidering him. I bought some tracing paper and traced him onto to the fabric before pulling it through the embroidery hoop. But because I used a piece of scrap fabric, it wasn't big enough to be pulled taut on the hoop. As a result, the stitching was uneven and the fabric was all scrunched up. :(

No matter, I'll definitely be getting more embroidering done because it's so much fun!


I appreciate you stopping by and reading my blog! Do leave me a note!
