The Curtains

Here is a look at the finished curtains:

I started with a fusible web design:

Start with a fresh design

Then I continued with embroidery:

Completed embroidery by hand.

I added embellishments:

Look at those button eyes!

And finished up the tiny smile, antenna, and center flower:

The last finishing touches.

And the final product:

Where's are you little bee?

Where’s are you little bee?

 

Ah, there you are!

This design was created using the fusible web method.  You can find a step-by-step tutorial on how to do this here:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qi76H5JQ9BE&list=PL39F4DE9E147D7243  She goes a tad fast but she is really good at explaining the basics.

I would suggest that if you are starting out on something like this, don’t fret on getting it just right.  The design, stitching, and embellishments for this project are not “perfect” which I think makes it more personal, which I really like.

So, have you designed anything lately?  🙂  I sure hope so!
