ooh, 2 posts in one day (must be a day off work!!). Well, here is my first attempt at a bit of free hand machine embroidery.
First I hand dyed some calico fabric with distressed inks to age it...
Then I drew a bird cage, front and back and embroidered these adding a red fabric bird and a ribbon to hang it.
I then stuffed it with cotton wool and a bit of lavender oil, and voila!
