Stampotique Challenge- Stitches

Meadow Flowers Sewn
 Coby's Stitches Challenges

I love sewing but don't find the time to do it, so this was a great opportunity to play with fabric and Stitches

I stamped Stampotique Dwindled with Stazon black, I found the best fabric was a quite heavy tight woven cotton also tried a satin but the ink bled too much

The meadow was made up of the Stampotique flowers
Daisy Daisy
Jo's Flower Cube using Black Stazon

Then coloured with DecoArt So Soft Fabric paints, blending as you would watercolour
 Bright Yellow
Green Apple
Indian Turquoise

I embroidered the flower centres with a satin stitch  and played with a variety of different stitches
 The edge of the canvas was made up of a variety of fabric and trims

Loved working on this project! :) 


  1. Jools your fabric art is just awesome. What a great idea if you love fabric then playing this way gives you an option to get out the fabrics. I'm a fabric liver as well. And will consider the options in your project. Thanks a lot for sharing. Love your colors and the stamp...
