I was delighted with my colours and that I had a female pictogram. As I love creating with the embroidery software I looked to how I could use the pictogram. A bit of research lead me to the female icon and from then on it was fun. One thing I forgot was that we had to include a full size pictogram so I’m afraid she had to be inserted behind the icon.
Some sampling and trial runs to make sure it would work.
I have a 780 which would have meant I had to re-hoop and I was terrified that I wouldn’t get it perfect, so I begged my friend Carol who has an 830 if we could stitch the design out on her machine – I owe you big time, Carol! I used a layer of Sulky Sticky + on the back of the hoop and two layers of tear away stabilizer, laid the felt down on the top and secured it with a line of basting. Then we started… The first layer is made up of female pictograms in various poses – dancing, celebrating, happy, going places.
The second layer is made up of the full size pictogram which I decided to add with an appliquéd sheer fabric.
The final layer is the female icon made up of a rainbow of female pictograms.
I have really enjoyed participating and am loving seeing what everyone else is doing. Thank you for the invitation to join in.
