I just finished a new felt cuff. It's a lovely red...deep, deep red. I used black and shades of grey to embroider the flowers, scrolls and leaves. It has a really sophisticated look and would look great with jeans or a great suit. I finished the inside so that if you are allergic to wool it won't make you itchy!
In the next couple of days I'm going to start a series on embroidery....embroidery 101. With a few basic stitches you can make beautiful accessories, or embellish some of your own items. I am now bleary-eyed...and think I'll go rest my eyes!
