SAL 2 – Adding the padding..

I have made a little progress on my ‘Christmas Baubles’ kit by Kate Barlow, and as it is  goldwork embroidery, padding is everything. Felt is used as padding and the kit came with pre-marked felt that simply needed to be cut out and applied to each bauble.

I started with the largest bauble which needed 4 layers of padding…..

The second bauble needed three layers of padding…..

While the final bauble simply needed two layers….

And that is as much as I have managed to complete (simply because my mind wanders onto other projects). But at least now I can start on the fun part of adding colour and sparkle.

I am just starting my journey on this SAL, but if you want to see more experienced members – Please check out the fabulous stitching that they do. If you are interested in joining us you can contact Avis for details.

About wybrow1966

My name is Deborah, and my earliest recollection of being creative is learning how to smock at primary school. We had a wonderful, white-haired lady who came in once a week to teach the 'girls' how to sew.

Now, as a primary teacher, I often give up evenings to teach enthusiastic children how to embroider. I am now just about to embarked into the world of blogging.

    You’ve applied lots of padding! It’s incredible how much is needed for a project isn’t it. Can’t wait for the colour to appear!

    oooh I’m really looking forward to seeing how you do this technique.

    That’s going to make some plump and beautiful baubles. Prep work can be a bit ‘meh’ but once you start covering that padding I think it’ll really come to life.

  5. Goodness, it’s going to be quite an adventure, isn’t it!

    Even your prepwork is neat and tidy — I can’t wait to see the sparkly colors get added!!!

  15. Oh such a lot of work already and non of this will show. However as this looks as though its going to be a stunning piece I think all the groundwork is going to be worth it.

    Wow, this is a new way of making an embroidery! At least for me! looking forward to see the development on this embroidery!!!!

  17. Jen says:

    This SAL is a great way to get these made by Christmas Deborah. Your scissors look interesting too. What brand are they? Are they specifically for cutting felt or just all round embroidery scissors?

    It looks like loads of progress to me! I’ve never done gold work – is very interesting to follow what your doing! Hopefully the SAL will help you continue?
