Bunnies Begin


I've roughly sketched bunnies on nylon felt and pulled a variety of beige and brown threads to use. I honestly don't remember reading anywhere about embroidering on felt but sorta discovered it by accident. I find it marvelous to work on. There's no weave to worry about when working small and it stretches nicely on a hoop. The edges turn so neatly when I cut the image out to applique. ...It is very forgiving...especially if I use a color of felt close to the color of the image.... I always stitch the lightest and darkest areas first and then fill in..

Thanks Gerry for the hint of stitching on felt. I can see where it would be forgiving. I use it as a base on the embellisher machine but never for hand embroidery.
