the bee is made up of bullion stitches close together.
I have been doing a little more work on the fusion blanket but felt like a change so I decided to make one of these. It is a small retractable tape measure . It is made using some wool fabric , then I drew up a design of little garden creatures and flowers, then I transferred the design to the wool that was a bit tricky to see so it is mainly just stitched free hand and I just roughly followed what I had drawn and added some bees to the flowers . I haven't done any stitcheries for a couple of years i think as I have been teaching myself to crochet . The stitching is the fast part but sewing this up takes a bit longer . When it is properly finished I show you it. I have to put the back piece on and join it carefully all around. I like doing these. I have lots of ideas buzzing around in my head too . I have started to draw them roughly in my book so I don't forget about them so when I want to make some more I won't forget. I want to do some bunnys! I love doing bunnys...so cute! here are a few pics. (sorry that some of the pics are a bit dark).Well that's all at the moment.
