Two days back my niece asked me to do something for her to hang it in her class room noticeboard. When I was thinking what to do, embroidery on paper strikes me. Long back I have tried it and this time I wanted to do something that looks professional. Searched for the patterns in the internet and I got so many from a website. I decided to do a round border and planned to write some thoughts inside it. I was really happy on seeing the outcome of it.
First the design has been pricked in the chart paper and then with single strand of thread the design has been created using straight stitches. Can u believe that the two rounds in the design is made up of only straight stitches? Wonderful art on paper with needle and thread. Then added the thoughts inside it. Added a square border with thermocol balls and it is all done.
Also, an Iris folding card which I have done months back. Today I have added borders to it. An easy and simple technique which gives you a cute and beautiful design. Learnt this technique from the net and design is also taken from the net. If u google for Iris folding patterns and tutorials you will get enough details with so many patterns. We can finish it within an hour depending upon the design.
I have used satin ribbon. But most of the tutorials use patterned paper. Now over to the card.
Also, I have tried origami flowers and have done a boquet out of it. Will come up with that in another post. Till then happy embroidering and crafting.
