Here’s why embroidery is so awesome.

Did you ever get the chance to add the the Tula Pink Acacia Racoon print to your life in some shape or form? No? Same here. I completely missed the boat.

What’s more, a recent search for this elusive, rare and out of print fabric brought up a listing on etsy where it was up for grabs here in Australia at $100 per yard so yip, I’d say that boat has sailed far into the horizon.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So for those of you who have appreciation for Tula Pinks epic creative skills this emby design is from Urban Threads and I’ve only been meaning to stitch it out for just over a year now.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Alot of thought and consideration went into the colour scheme, it looked pretty complicated with the 17 colour changes and I really wanted to avoid browns especially when using the tie dye minky as the base.

The finished result is a pretty close match to the original colour palette of the fabric and overall it turned out great.

 


 

After the 1 hour and 40 minutes stitch out time I’d say the colours came together pretty well.  So far I have made only two of these minky cosmetic bags in pink and I think I will make another two in blue. So there it is, being able to use embroidery on projects this way with materials that I ACTUALLY have on hand is why I think machine embroidery is just so…..well….awesome!!! The list of restrictions becomes a little less lengthy and it’s actually a lot of fun working these ideas out.

If you ever have time, take a look at the UT online magazine. If you find a favourite that you’d like to see used in projects let me know!
