i recently found a super fun video by joanne fink where she shows how to create her gorgeous decorated letters in her own "zenspiration" style! i really love the way she adds doodles and doodads in all those wonderful little blank spaces........and then i started wondering how could i go about putting my own spin on it? so instead of drawing my letter on paper like joanne does, i drew an "L" on a piece of heavyweight muslin fabric using a micron.
then i took it to my sewing maching and filled in some of those empty spaces using
different colors of thread.
when i was done making a mess with the sewing machine (i'm a total newbie when it comes to free-motion stitching!), i realized i had covered up most of my black lines.....
so i touched it up with some more micron.
and, well, it's not exactly "zenspiration"......but it's definitely "elvie"! :))
you can watch joanne's video here......
have fun inventing new ways to decorate your initials!
