So these are the first two things I've tried to embroider. The tote bag was the first thing I did. I love the tree!!! It's the best tree ever!

But unfortunately the pillow for my grandma isnt as good as I wanted it to be. I made a noob mistake...and bought absolutely deplorable fabric... like... it was so thin and dainty and almost impossible to embroider... I had a lot of issues with it and it made it take forever. But luckily I am done with it.

So I bought some...Avida fabric or something, It seems to be working good. I'm making my fiance a present for when he comes home from deployment!!!

But now I'm starting to get more into the transferring of patterns and the nitty gritty of embroidery, and I'm curious as to how to do... shading? Some of the projects I see with shading on them are absolutely breathtaking! I want to be that awesome.

Sorry if these pictures dont come up... not sure what I'm doing lol.







-Love,
Purple.

I think they look great, especially for your first try!

I hear you about the thin fabric.  I think Kona cotton is one of the best fabrics for embroidering on.
