I decided to try a new technique for a recent embroidery swap. My partner liked deer, and I had some patterns I'd been saving for a rainy day. I'd also just read the thread on here about crayon tinting and decided to try it.

I really like the way it turned out. I just traced the pattern with my water soluble marker, then I colored it in and ironed. And ironed. And ironed. Eventually the crayon felt like any other part of the fabric, so I stopped.


Finished deer:

And she decided she wanted to become a lap blanket:


The edges will fray as she's washed to create a worn in look.

I'm a big fan of crayon tinting. I kind of can't wait to use it again.

That is fan-flapping-tastic!  It creates such a sweet, soft look that's both vintage and kitschy without being annoying.

You have inspired me, lady!  Keep up the great work!

That deer is adorable!  And thanks for the info about crayon tinting.  I've never heard of it, and it sounds really cool.
