Yesterday I was able to start my project (embroidered pillow of Spain) for the first week of my 30 Day Challenge, which will be completed by Sunday. The fabric I ordered for the piece isn’t quite the color I expected it to be, but that is okay because I actually like it better than what I saw pictured! I ended up adjusting the color of floss I was using once the fabric arrived. Initially I was going to outline Spain in orange, and do the title and little hearts in off white. I reversed the colors, and picked a more muted orange. I’m still not 100% on where I’m going to place the little hearts, so I’m open for suggestions!
Here are some photos of its evolution so far (the actual color of the fabric isn’t as it appears in these photos)!
The stitches I’m using are a split stitch, and a back stitch, and the fabric is 100% cotton (Kona Cotton). Oh, and my boyfriend just asked me “is there any little islands off of spain?” I forgot to do the islands! So those will be added on along with the hearts. 🙂
