Day 5 of HEARTS: Kitty Amore

felt cat

Day 5 of HEARTS!

Many of you know that I love hearts! I love the shapes and all of the possibilities. This is a version of my Phat Matt and Friends on-line class. This version has lots of patched hearts and a few heart shaped buttons, with fun colors, and she is filled with so much love! The stitches are simple ones: blanket, chain, lazy daisy, straight, back stitch, whipped, and French knot.

Happy February to you!

The base of the heart is made from felt, some lace scraps, and a few buttons. The stitches used are straight and blanket (which you should know ahead of time). These hearts can be accessorized with purchased flowers (ribbonwork will not be covered in class); other items like charms or sequins can also be added in for extra details.

Working on a few things…

I have been busy in the studio, working on some new classes, working on some old classes, and working on some fun things.

felt needle caseNow for the fun part. This is a little felt needle case that I just made for fun. My grandmother had one very similar to this. I used synthetic felt, perle cotton, ribbon, lace and some fun buttons. I would like to say this took an afternoon to stitch up, but it actually took me about 20 hours to make. There are two complete halves, a front and a back that are lined so that the stitches do not show.

Happy Stitching to you all, enjoy~ Christen

Penny Rug

Penny Rug

pennyrugThis cute little rug is adapted from a vintage technique that started in the 1800’s, where scraps of wool from blankets or clothing were cut out using a penny or circular template (hence the name). These round sections were then stitched with the blanket stitch, often with a penny in the middle to keep the fabric flat.  This decorative piece can be used as a small table or dresser matte. It is made from simple ingredients, and easy embroidery stitches.
