I have had this embellisher for a good couple of years now, and it has never really made it out of it's box! Lately I have had a couple of visitors to the shop asking if we would do any classes for it so I decided to get it out and have a bit of a play. I am so busy lately that I really feel that I need an excuse to just let loose and have fun! I had a go with the Simplicity 12 needle Deluxe embellisher and 'oh my' what fun I had!!!!
This was the first item I made on this occasion.
I had fun with a bit of hand and machine embroidery on it and I think that this really made the design come to life.
So after that I thought I would have a go at a bird as I have birds on another (secret) project that i am working on so thought it would be nice to do something I could share. This may become a book cover though I quitel like the idea of making him a centre piece for a cushion....
This little fellow looks happy enough perched on his branch amongst the cherry blossom! I think I may do a little extra beading on him, as there is no such thing as too much bling!
