Hey there Stitchy Peeps! Look at this!
How cute is this?!?!?!?! It's the Vogart piece I mentioned last time. I saw this worked up quite some time ago..I don't remember where, but it was somewhere on the net...and I thought it was BEYOND adorable. So I was thrilled to find a pattern for it! Whoopee!!!
I sure do love the internet.
Let's enjoy some more tasty pics, shall we?
Ok, so here's something I think is cool. Check out the grass!
To make the grass, I twisted 3 strands each of two different shades of green and attached it to the fabric. This wouldn't work if this were a tea towel or something that got handled, but since I am going to frame this, the twisty grass will be safe behind glass. :) It could be easily snagged since it's only attached in two places, so I would never do this on a t-shirt or anything...but I think it looks way cool! And no, that's not how I did the lazy daisies, though they are done with a blended needle of the same colors I used for the twisty grass...that's why they don't look the same as the grass. But you could probably tell that by looking at the picture. :) I feel the need to explain everything...don't know why, I just do! Tee hee.
Now, here's the part that still needs to be completed:
I did the outline of the sign with a blended needle...this time with four stands of light brown and two strands of a darker brown. My plan was to use the extra two strands of light brown and four dark brown to do the lettering...but it didn't stand out enough, so I scrapped that idea. I was simply going to use a darker brown but then I got to thinking...maybe I should do the lettering in a bright color, something that really catches the eye. Or maybe something not that bright, but simply colorful and complimentary to the orange & brown shades on the piece...like a nice blue. Or maybe red to bring out the orange's cute little lips...Hmmm, what do you think?
Lemme know what you guys, think, ok? I really would like some input on what you, my talented Stitchy Peeps, think would look good. :-D
Hope to hear from you soon! Until then...
