Alice's Bird

I hand made most of my christmas gifts xmax 2010! I embroidered doileys to adorn bags and vintage frames for my nearest and dearest. It was a most enjoyable task! And great practice for up and coming embroidery workshops this january. This budgie, for my sister and is probably my bestest as i used 12 different types of stitch!

My aim during 2011 is to make/salvedge/upcycle as much as possible! This includes all gifts and all non essential clothing! essential = tights,shoes and pants! You get the idea. I have already started knitting a jumper for next winter.... 

Tell me what you have been making so far this year, and join my year of make-do-and-mend!


p.s Take the Handmade pledge!

p.p.s This book is great! Embroidery Effects.
