So, I decided the Feeling Stitchy badge needed work. And I thought I'd let you tag along on my laborious, haphazard process. :)
We've had a lovely handmade banner by Kirsty for oh, almost a year, and I wanted to incorporate its awesomeness in a new badge...
The original fabric background gave me trouble, so I erased it (yes that takes A LONG time. :)
Harumph. Something about that nubbly background just wasn't working for me. I tried another natural linen background, but that one looked too dark.
I even tried putting it all in a wooden embroidery hoop. I was getting tired and lazy, so my execution on this one wasn't the best:
What do you think? Did you like old thimble guy better (at the top)? Like any of those fabric backgrounds? Think I'm a nut for redesigning badges in my spare time? All comments welcome... :)
