Topic: Paper Embroidery
Let's take a little break from the sketches, shall we?
I needed a paper embroidery for a swap in the alphabet series. This assignment was "K is for Kitties".
I had a lot more cats in my file of patterns than I realized, but I fell in love with these cuddling cats. I don't know the resource for the pattern but it has been printed out with the legend 'free pattern from files'.
I pricked it out on grey paper with soft coral dots. The cats were stitched with two shades of brown with grey whiskers.
The pattern has a heart in the sky but I changed it to a crescent moon and stitched it in yellow.
I poked holes in the sky and installed tiny star brads. These started out white but I colored them with a bright yellow Sharpie marker.
I gave the whole thing a coral border and added a yellow sentiment, bordered and cut as a flag.
