A Bit Of A Challenge...


I fancied trying something a little different, and I've been thinking about customising clothing recently, so I was very excited when I found a denim jacket at the charity shop.
So I had a go at machine embroidering it with a selection of my favourite scrips and scraps of fabric.
There are a few patches here and there...
and of course a hare!
There were a few technical bits and bobs to work out along the way, but that added to the enjoyment.
Right, time for another trip to the charity shop soon!

  2. Wow! That must have been a challenge! I bought a smart black linen jacket for £1 from a charity shop with this sort of thing in mind. I might even get round to it one day!

  5. That is stunning! I adore hares. Would love to have a go at something like that, you don't produce any templates at all do you? He would look perfect on a cushion in my snug. Think I'm a bit old to wear him on a jacket now, although.......!

Would you like to make a comment chuck?
I'd love to hear your thoughts, just a minute and I'll put the kettle on.
Custard cream or bourbon?
