Come wander with me along this colourful street. A street full of pretty cozy houses with chimneys and street lanterns, with window sill flower boxes, with bright attics, flower pots and even cats.
Linen and scraps of pretty fabrics, free motion machine stitching and a tiny touch of hand embroidery. That's what was used for these four bookmarks. They will make a nice small present for any occasion for anyone and especially for a book lover.
It was such a fun projects, more of a play than work really. It felt like drawing on fabric with the help of a sewing machine. I think my recent practice in free motion embroidery paid off, it set me free in a way and let me experiment a bit with new designs.
I like the messy lines of free motion machine embroidery and slightly frayed edges of fabric pieces, the unevenness of stitches and crookedness of walls and window frames. It all makes the bookmarks look more like pencil sketches really. The back side of each bookmark is very simple, just a stamped handmade sign and a tree.
