A project with legs!

Spent a couple of days on my little octopus that I started a few weeks ago on a workshop run by Georgina Bellamy of That Embroidery Girl .

The first job was to use soft string to complete the padding for all 8 legs. These were then outlined in pearl purl which was stretched and couched down with invisible thread. Once all the legs had been outlined the soft string padding was then covered in smooth and rough purl. I am quite pleased with the results so far – now all I have to do is the leg tips and cover the body!

Happy stitching everyone.
