About a month ago, I mentioned that I had a project in Stitch Summer 2013. The magazine wasn't out yet, so I didn't want to give all the details up.
But Stitch Summer 2013 hit the newsstands this past week!
I submitted my project idea back in September 2012 - a basic skirt made special with hand-embroidery. I sent along a picture of my Nautical Striped Skirt and a sketch of my proposed embroidery and they accepted it. Yay!
The editor and I went back and forth on colors for the project. I originally wanted a navy blue skirt with ivory, light gray, teal, and mustard embroidery. But apparently navy doesn't photograph well [duh, Rebecca], so the Art Gallery Empire Yellow was my second choice.
The skirt itself takes about an hour to make...but the embroidery took me a little while. Ok, it took me a lot of a while :)
It certainly never gets old seeing my name in print! And I'll certainly be happy to see my skirt again after almost 6 months apart.
Have you ever embroidered a handmade or store-bought clothing item?
