"Secret" Embroidery on Feeling Stitchy

Taupe fabric background
Well, I finally posted the results of my "secret" embroidery project.

The project was a wedding embroidery for my cousin, AND a review of the new DMC Stitchable Mesh fabric. The finished post is on Feeling Stitchy:


Stitching on the mesh was a wonderful experience, but it did have its challenges, all of which I go into in my post.

My favorite part was probably the sheen of it - it makes everything look like it's glowing - and layering fabric underneath creates an added "floating" effect.

Here is my finished project - a lovely wedding hoop:

I'm doing a very special giveaway on Feeling Stitchy - if you like the pattern I used for the embroidery, I'll create a custom pattern, with the names of your choices, for two winners!

I haven't gotten a lot of entries so far, but I'm still very excited to create a pattern for the people who have responded. Please add your name to the comments, if you're interested!

What do you think of the mesh and my project? Please leave a comment to let me know. :)
