First, learn several techniques for attaching the patch to clothing. Then we start a little cactus with back stitches, satin stitch and needle painting (short & long): http://lmt.li/broderie-live-jour3
Learn how to decorate an already embroidered piece by adding some seed stitch details. We will take the opportunity to add small pompom flowers. We will end with needle painting for the pomegranate which we will start the next day http://lmt.li/broderie-live-jour4
Learn how to insert beads to finish your pomegranate. Next, a short introduction to the history of Sashiko, traditional Japanese embroidery. http://lmt.li/broderie-live-jour5

Looking forward to embroidering with you!
After being a journalist for almost two decades, Clara decided to put writing aside and put "thread in her ideas". The idealist who chose journalism hoping to change the world, however, still lives within her.
Now that she has put aside her pencil, her needles are her tools, embroidery allowing her to let color bring the images that make up her works to life. She is also proficient in knitting, crocheting, spinning and weaving and also uses these techniques to express her thoughts.
The make do and mend philosophy is part of my life. Whenever possible, I create my items using traditional needlework techniques to give a second life to the materials and objects I collect all around me.
