I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I am doing a pillow for a friend of mine and thought I would try tinting. First thing I learned-tint first, sew second. I embroidered first and it was kind of a pain. I really like the way it turned out. I am going to set the tint, and then dye it in tea to give it more of a vintage feel. It's eventually going to be a pillow.

Thanks everybody! I can't wait to finish it and try another piece.
I just used regular crayola crayons. It's really easy. Here's the thread on it. Lots of directions and links.

Beautiful!  I have that pattern too and I've never used it.  It looks SO great stitched up!

I read your manifestos and strange religious tracts.  You took me to your library and kissed me in the stacks.

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

Wow, she's beautiful, I especially love her face!  I guess I'll have to add tinting to the ever expanding list of things to try!
