Crafty Sheep's May Color Challenge


Crafty Sheep is giving a color challenge each month for any type of craft. I wanted to practice a few embroidery stitches and found this fabric in my stash that matched perfectly. This was my first time embroidering on the print of a fabric. It was easy, fun and I love the colors. 
Check out Crafty Sheep's blog for June's color challenge and join us this month.

  2. So pretty! I've never thought of embroidering on a printed fabric like that. The texture is really beautiful. If you're looking for another place to share your creative projects, head on over to Etcetorize. Would love to see you there!
