Practical Practice


I need plenty of practice before I embroider the glasses case for competition, but the thought of randomly embroidering flowers and leaves isn't appealing. So I'm working the design around the bottom of a rather boring pencil skirt. The embroidery at the end should (I hope!) be better than that at the beginning, but I don't think anyone is going to peer closely enough at a skirt hem to notice. It's very much a work-in-progress, so I haven't yet ironed out the marks of the sewing hoop.

  3. It's a lovely design and your skirt will be gorgeous! They might not get close enough to notice the stitches on the hem, but the stitching will make a plain skirt beautiful.
