Block Printing….

This year I got a last minute chance to go to the Sewing Bee show in Excel London. It was a great day and I saw some wonderful materials and gained so much inspiration. I was going to try a class at block printing but there were no places left so I decided to buy a kit and decided it would make a perfect Christmas gift for my crafty daughter, must admit it was really difficult resisting using it for those few months.

Luckily said daughter spent a few days home over Christmas and we had a crafty day! She stamped the design on a few items, napkins, cosmetic bag and a white vest top of mine.

We then decided that this lovely design would look great with a little embroidery.
That morning we had a lovely mother and daughter time, sewing, chatting and watching our favourite show ‘Gilmore Girls‘.

Here’s my attempt at embroidering over the stamping on my vest top.


I kept to just using green mostly, but I did give the daisy some ‘lazy daisy’ stitching…

I haven’t embroidered over all the stamping, I quite like the effect of just doing a bit.
I used simple embroidery stitching, 2 threads at a time, and just running stitch, back stitch, lazy daisy and satin stitch.

My daughter has used more colours in hers, I’m sure she won’t mind me showing you … lovely isn’t it.

Well I’ll be wearing my newly decorated top soon.
This is a great craft to do, I can thoroughly recommend the products in the kit.
The stamp was very good quality. The paint really nice (just a warm press to seal on fabric) and the foam pad keeps the stamping even.

Thanks for reading, here’s to another year of crafting.
Happy 2018 everyone
Love Rosie
