STITCHED: Noughts & Crosses Inspired

Loving the classes over at STITCHED! I was feeling sick over the weekend, so I spent the day in bed, practicing my embroidery skills and trying out Jackie Bowcutt's Noughts and Crosses. Here's what I ended up with:

I stretched my finished fabric over and 8 x 10 canvas so I can hang it on my wall.

I love the monoprinting technique and will definitely try it again. I was even inspired to do a few test prints in my art journal! I had everything on hand for this one, except the Dye-na-flow paints, which I used to color the fabric. Love the paints, too, and am already planning projects to try out with my teen students this winter.

Next, I decided to dye some zebra print fabric and just kind of experimented from there. The word is printed on fabric using my own handwriting as the font (cool, right?). I did a sort of variation of needle-turned applique to add the fabric heart and the blue furry trim around it. Loving how it turned out!


  1. I can't wait to do this workshop....

  2. these are wonderful, thank you for posting these and how you created them. love the texture of floss lifted off the fabric.

  3. all the texture, of your embroidery is appealing! :) i also like the colors you used. as far as sickness goes, you know you can vent it out to me in an email, as if that's any consolation.
