Today I have something new for you! I have been wanting to venture into embroidery for quite a while now, but as I'm not one of those persons who simply goes out and buys everything I need at once, it usually takes me a while to compile all the tools needed for any new craft that I'm interested in. Truth be told, finances are always tight in my household, so I have to gather crafting supplies little by little. Anyway, point being, I finally got around to doing some embroidery. Okay, so its just some embellishing, but hey it counts!
These are some felt badges that I embellished with different embroidery stitches. I forgot to include something in the picture for size reference before sending them off to their new homes, but they are 3 inches tall. This is the very first embroidery that I've ever done. The cupcake was my first one, and I learned back stitch, satin stitch , and whip stitch with that one. The sugar skull was my second one, and I learned how to do a french knot and a daisy stitch. I love how they turned out, and I look forward to making more of these little felt badges!
here are a couple of close ups...
I used some beads as sprinkles on the cupcake.
