Summer 2021: Google has ended its email subscription service. I am searching for a replacement, but it might take a while given current demands on my time. I won't be posting again until I have a replacement. In the meantime, I will post occasionally on Instagram

Loop de Loop de Loop

The procrastinating is over and the loops (aka, Curly) on Wild Child have been tackled.

The plan was to use surface embroidery to enhance Curly with the look of coloured pencil. My goal was to have the shaded loops appear as if they had been printed on the fabric, and only by looking closely would you know that they were stitched.

To begin, I selected a lot of potential colours!
