Fabric panels in the shop!

Uploaded on Razzi.me Uploaded on Razzi.me
I am sooo excited about these new things in my shop. They've been in the works for quite a long while. So the excitement is double because they are finally here! Fabric panels that you can stitch on - embellish in any way you like and then use for all kinds of things.

All these panels come with a bit of embroidery floss in random colours to get you started with the stitching straight away.

At the moment, these panels are available to pre-order only. I'm expecting to receive the panels in 2-3 weeks, but I just couldn't wait any longer to share them! :-)

First, here's a Matryoshka doll softie panel - which you may recognise from the Matryoshka embroidery pattern. It has gone through a couple of tests to get her all ready to be stitched and played with.

You can add as much or as little embroidery as you like. I kept it fairly simple on mine, mostly satin stitching. And a combination of back stitch and Turkey stitch to add 3D fringes on the shawl. It's my favourite bit! :-)

And there are fabric panels too! I made them into pillow cases, because well, why not! :-) And a pillow case is quick to make. I am a fan of almost-instant craft gratification. The smaller panel would also be super cute in a quilt.

The Doodle Flowers panel is a flower doodle (hence the name - so clever, eh?) drawn in pen combined with watercolour. It has a very hand drawn feel to it because I didn't stay inside the lines with the watercolour. I covered all the pen lines with embroidery (mostly back stitch) and then I made it up into the pillow cover you see above. Mmm.. green and pink! :-)

The Watercolour Flowers panel gets its name from being drawn/painted entirely with watercolours. And it sports largeish poppy type flowers. For this one I kept my stitching simple, just a bit of daisy stitches, fly stitches or cross stitches around the centre of some of the flowers. But obviously you can add lots more stitching to it if you fancy!
