Origami Sweaters


  These are the drapes I made for my grand daughter's room.  I embroidered a butterfly   to put on one of the tie backs.

These pillow are appliquéd to match the drapes for her. 

  Each part was ironed onto heat-and-bond, then ironed onto the front of the pillow.       Embellished with little rosettes.  All parts were appliquéd onto the pillow.

Ashleys_xmas_jacket_front.jpg (13526 bytes) This was my first chenille sweat shirt attempt. I cut out the fabric for the bear on the back.  Satin stitch around the design on the back.


  I wanted to length a pair of my granddaughter's jeans.  She is growing taller not bigger around.  A lady at the Brother Embroidery Club in Guelph brought in a pair of jeans she did this technique to.  I thought it would be great to lengthen pant for growing children.  You recycle old jeans at the same time.  I embroidered on the jeans as I cut the pieces.  After washing the jeans, they fray.
