I made these for Mistress Jennie in the IYP swap. She had mentioned that she was looking to decorate her bathroom with a art nouveau theme and both of these images were pinned on her Pinterest. I decided I was going to try to make her some kind of wall art in the art nouveau style, then I realized I could make them more functional by turning them into towel hooks/holders.

I started by stitching the images on my machine. My technique for this is basically to stitch over a printed image of the design and then tear away the paper. I embellished the stitching with watercolor paint and some painted beads. The whole thing was stretched over a layer of polyfill and stitched over a wooden plaque. (a la Ludi's embroidery finishing tutorial). I enlisted my husband to forge the hooks for me and then he attached them to the back of the plaque. I love how they came out and I'm pretty sure Jennie loves them, too!

Pics!

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

These are beautiful! I can not believe you stitched them on a machine. I can't even sew a straight line.
