Flair Magazine: Issue 30
If you are looking for something to brighten up your home why not have a go at making a chirpy little bird. Most of the materials you need to make your bird can be found in your sewing stash and what's more, as the project only requires basic sewing and machine embroidery skills, it's perfect for beginners. So go on, find some fabric and threads and you'll soon be flying away with ideas!
If you would like to add an embroidered decoration with a bit of a twist, why not try stitching 'off the edge'. By using water soluble fabric it is possible to create an embroidered motif that extends beyond the raw edge of a piece cloth. You can then repeat the motif as many times as you want to give items such as scarves, table runners, blinds, pillowcases and garments, a truly unique look. Have fun!
