Lazy Daisies…

Is anyone else as clumsy and messy as I am? It’s a nightmare, so when I washed my old faithful grey vest top and saw some oily marks that nothing could shift, I thought it would be relegated to the rag bag… but then I decided to embroider some lazy daisy stitches all over the front of the top – adding a little detail and more importantly covering those marks.

If you’re not confident with embroidery, I think this stitch is a great one to try, it really is very simple but looks very effective. Here’s a YouTube clip

I used the same colour embroidery silk as the top and just randomly sewed the daisies … some covering the marks and some not.
Well I think the top lives to see another day ! 46.pngThat’s it, thanks for reading, back next week
