Design Sheet - Paisley

This design sheet is the first piece of work using the cut up cloth.  I am SO PLEASED with this!  I'm grateful to the class group for encouraging me to cut up that fabric and move in other directions.

We learned how to make the gathered pocket in Karen's class; it's a very versatile technique.  You can see some stunningly beautiful examples on Karen's blog here and here.  That's the type of embroidery I aspire to create one day.

Design sheet with paisley motif.  Fabric, stitch and markers on watercolour paper
This was the first time I stitched on paper; I used a 185 gsm watercolour paper.
