5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Parachute Regiment Badge. on: September 20, 2010 09:32:07 AM




I recently finished making this for my grandad's birthday. He served as a Para during and after the second World War and is hugely proud of this fact. I saw this kit and knew it'd make a great present for him.

I ran into a few issues when I was stitching it. I was very disappointed when I opened the kit to find that it smelt very very strongly of smoke. The contents spent a few days out on the washing line before I could begin to try and use them. I contacted the company who supplied the kit, but to date I still havent had any response. I certainly wont be buying from them again!

I ended up stitching this design twice. The aida fabric supplied was a mid grey colour, this was far too close to the colours of thread supplied meaning the design was quite lost. On top of this the threads supplied for the parachute and wings were almost identical in colours so all of the outlining was lost. After thinking about it long and hard (each time there were a fair number of hours of work involved) I knew I needed to start again. I used cream aida instead and used a different thread all together to outline the parachute and wings. By the time Id finished the second version I was satisfied with the end result.

Here are a couple of shots of the detail:

Wow, this is amazing. Blackwork and stitching on something than aida are both on my list of things I want to try so this is a wonderful inspiration.

Wow I love this. Have you backed it with anything? I'm never sure about making bookmarks, I'd have to keep my stitching neater than normal if it was going to be on show.
