Flower Earrings

I've come across loads of tutorials lately for making pretty fabric flowers and decided to have a go - now I'm totally addicted to singeing the fabric. I made a couple of flowers for my daughter's hair first, then made these earrings for me. I am really pleased with the result - I think I'll be making these in lots colours. They're cute and give a quick crafty fix!

embroidered cardigan

Here's another recent project. I used some scroll designs from Embroidery Library and edited them using Stitch Era embroidery software so that the designs would stop at the collar. I also did some shirring (there is a great tutorial at Create & Delegate) around the collar and the back to give the cardi a better shape. I will definately be using these techniques again.
