DRAWING WITH THREAD
Every now and then I'll do a drawing or some sort of art work depicting my daughter. This time I decided to try embroidering a portrait. Definitely a lot harder to capture a persons likeness in thread as opposed to a sketch. I started with a sketch that I really had to simplify. Then I transfered it to my material. I used a light table to set my drawing on then placed my fabric on top to trace the image. I used a blue Dritz marking pen that is water soluble to trace my drawing onto the fabric. Then I started stitching. Once I was finished I lightly sprayed the fabric and stitches with water and the blue line work dissappeared.
