I recently made this hanging pillow type thing for a swap partner. I used one of Hillary Lang's stitchette patterns on linen.





The hanging strap is made from some organic cotton twill tape stamped with some rubber stamps I carved.



I am absolutely in love with how it turned out, but a little sad that I have to send it away!
Here are some close ups of the embroidery:





I thought the sparkly embroidery floss would look cute in the wings, but it was less cute than I thought it would be, plus I HATED working with it. Blah. I will not be using it again, If I can help it!
