Coloring in Embroidery designs

Mary’s design

Last month our bee used embroidery designs from Hatched in Africa to make flower sketches with black thread.  This month we used watercolor pencils, fabric pastels, and watercolor pastels to color the designs.

It was very relaxing – reminded us of coloring books that we used as kids.  We also used water and paintbrushes to blend colors on the designs.

For practice using the coloring tools, we used black and white printed fabric.  It was a fun afternoon.  Not sure what we will do with our little designs yet. Looking forward to our next project.  Keep having fun sewing and quilting.  Donna
