This was an impromptu project, I wasn’t prepared to make this at all. My fingers itched as i waited for the zips to dry *i dyed ’em*.
The result of the dyed zips are pretty good, the color didn’t run BUT I made the color too strong for the fabric that I used *.* So I have a mismatch of color now 🙂
Oh well, I used it still… can’t possibly put it aside and as my daughter and I discussed, we concluded that the color of the zip can be lighter 🙂
The good thing about hand embroidery is that you can bring it along with you and stitch… I brought mine downstair. Both grace and job had their fun scooting away while I had mine *fresh air is always good!*
I didn’t plan to make this into a pin cushion, all the more, a real big one measuring 7″ x 7″! I planned it to be a mini wall hanging quilt but as I changed the placement of the patchwork squares around, I also changed my mind and in the end, I LOVE this pin cushion very much that I haven’t listed it up to the shop yet.
I have way too many scraps lying around and it would be really good to use them, not all, I still have a lot…love the deer and the rabbit, …ooh… *can you hear the conversation between them?*
