Another view of the embroidery.
After playing with the piece I came up with two ideas. First to make a dress for Barbie.
Barbie wearing the embroidery as a simple dress.
This was so pretty but the damage to the fabric couldn't be gotten around. I am considering embroidering another design but a lot neater this time. This could count as one of 12 outfits for Barbie I am going to make this year.
The other idea was to make a book cover with a 5 x 5 inch canvas I bought the other day. So this will be the cover for a Valentine book I was planning. The embroidery was so long it had to be set on the diagonal and it came out very nice. The cover was padded first so that the knots and threads on the back wouldn't show as much. Very different from the Valentine collage book last year.
Finished book cover.
