An original embroidery for home projects. It can take a long time to track down suitable pieces 'vintage' embroidery so I decided to make my own, based on vintage themes freshened to brighter colours.
I have designed and machine embroidered this chunky, seaside-style, blue and white jug with poppies. The jug is in satin stitch while the poppies are in a clean and simple running stitch. The blue stripes are actually on the warm side - heading towards jade. I thought it would be fun to add some more stripes to the jug handle.
The vintage linen is a warm white shade.
The size is 34cm deep x 26cm wide and the edges of the cloth are not hemmed.
Some project ideas, it could be part of a: new cushion, tote bag, patch-worked curtain, collage, framed picture...
