...and done with a stencil and Markal paintstiks...
...using an Oakshott bundle - Orchid Fat 8ths.
A lot of us have bought these delightful little bundles at shows and online...
...but maybe don't know what to do with them?
(Oakshott also have a free down load for a facemask at the minute!!)
I cut some pieces ...one of each colour.....about 5 inches wide.
I cut a daisy stencil 40mm across and used some Markal Paintstiks to put the daisies onto the fabrics after I'd marked the centre and outline of a 100mm hexagon.
The next step was to outline the daisy with a small straight stitch on the sewing machine.
I used gold metallic thread...
Afterwards I stitched the hexagon outline for reference. (This will be removed later on)
Now comes the fun bit.....the hand stitching (following the stitch diagram from before)
...and will be back after the weekend.
