Default My first mini embroidery

These days I worked on a pillow for my dollhouse. Although I stitch since I was a child, it was the first time I worked on such a small thing ...

As you can see from the picture, I had to use two pairs of glasses

I have chosen a chart by Elisabeth Plain. If you like it, you can download it from her blog

There are 5 different subjects in Berlin Work style.

I stitched on a regular and thick canvas, because I didn't want to do the background. I wanted to finish it soon.

I changed the colors to match those of the living room, the wallpaper there is yellow.

Once sewn, I will fill it with rice, in order to get a limp aspect, as it would be full of feathers. What do you think?

Buongiorno Egeria,

The result looks stunning. I never tried my hands on needlework but it looks so very different from printed versions. Great job done on this one.

Thank you Michael!

Needlepoint and cross stitch aren't difficult at all. You should try.

The difficult part is the mini size of the stitches... but this shouldn't be a problem for you

I have seen that there is a tapestry hanging in the master bedroom of your Montfaucon mansion. Is it a print???

Yes, I'm back again after a long summer break and I hope to have time to pop up more often on the forum.

Embroidery is my passion and I like to draw my patterns, although this is by Elisabeth Plain.

I learned stitching at school. Then I put it aside (it wasn't cool for a teenager!!) until I saw a beautiful pattern in a shop and I started to cross-stitch again. This was 25 years ago.

As I already said, I had never embroidered something so small before. It is hard for the eyes, but as Michael says is definitely better than a print.

I am happy to be back!

You are very kind Vicky! Thank you

The finished pillow will measure 3cm x 3cm (approx 1,2 inches x 1,2 inches).

Come on Sergio! Don't say so ...

There are more men who embroider than you could imagine. I'm not kidding!

I know because my husband was the editor of two cross-stitch magazines and I was in charge of the correspondence with readers.

I discovered with surprise that men embroider!

There are activities such as sewing, drawing, cooking, which are thought to be typically feminine. However the best tailors, the most famous fashion designers and renowned chefs are not women!
