This is my first post in sew_hip but I've enjoyed lurking and occasionally commenting for some time. My name is Laurel and I've been crafting with various mediums for some time, though currently I mostly enjoying sewing and embroidery. I'm excited to finally join in, so let me know what you think. The fawn is are the first time I've tried satin stitch embroidery, the fox the second. Before I just used to chain stitch outlines (the Jenny Hart school of embriodery maybe? I learned it from Bust magazine I'd say).
Also! I'd love to get into using my livejournal more, mostly as a craft / sewing blog, however I might also write about classic films, comics, music, student life and toronto (my current city). If anyone wants to be friends and has similar interests I'd love some more motivation to post.
These mittens are made from 100% lambswool upcycled from a Gap sweater and then lined with upcycled fleece. The embroidery and fake fur trim were all done by hand. The fawn was traced on first, but I found that didn't work very well so the fox and tree were then done free hand.
Me wearing them:
A better picture of the mittens, not so my nostrils. Sorry folks.
Ands that's all she wrote!
