The next stage of the EPP Storage Carry All (pattern by Lynette Anderson Designs) is preparing for some hand embroidery. This design has been traced using a light pad and a fine tipped Micron Pigma pen (my favourite is a size 005 nib in sepia brown) with a lightweight interfacing fused to the wrong side of the background fabric. The applique has been hand stitched in place already, as some surface embroidery needs to be added...
...once the three cameo sewing scenes had been hand embroidered using a dark brown DMC embroidery thread, they were hand appliqued into place. I'm using fabrics from the Hollyhock Cottage collection, also designed by Lynette, for this project. I just need to add a running stitch along the top and bottom of the row of hexies, and sew the handles in place, then I can finish the plastic pocket panels that were started a few days ago.
