is one of the services I also offer in my work.
As in the cute little child's vintage pillow case I have been working on for a customer.
The design is adorable. It is a pre-stamped pillow case from Vogart.
Much of the stitching has come undone and much of it was worked hurridly and in black.
When going over the work with the customer, she graciously gave me the "creative license" to chose how I wanted to restore it.
I removed much of the stitching, especially in the clouds
leaving only the top strip of the what was still in good shape.
I then embroidered it.
I left the brown embroidery in tact, but the faces of the cats needed some work.
As well as the clothing.
So much detail can be lost if the eyes are not embroidered with care.
And now the cats has some character
and their clothing has some life .
And now the pillowcase is restored ready for any sweet babe to lie it's head on!
I really liked the way this turned out............
Remember the old chair I posted about in my last post?
Here it is with my embroidered panel on it. I decided to sand and stain the chair instead of painting it.
The cushion is also in pretty fair condition. I am going to either quilt a tie on cushion/cover for it....or maybe crochet one............
what do you think?
I love the way the dark stain brought out the colors in the embroidery.
Best of all, it matches my old sewing machine in my studio. It will make the perfect sewing chair.
How about you?
Do you have any linens with broken or unfinished embroidery?
If you would like it to be finished or restored, just contact me at my email on my profile.
