This was so simple that I could definitely see doing more t-shirts or using the technique on a piece.
So then it was time to move on to the actual piece we brought. I forgot to take a beginning photo but it's not like I altered too much about it! Here is the front of the jacket.
I hand stitched on with DMC floss a little thicket of bamboo!
Then stitched a strand of lanterns on.
Here is the back. I took a panel that my mom has had for 10yrs but done nothing with. So I took and put it on to the jacket. I then did a feather stitch around it in DMC floss to accentuate it.
Here's a close up.
I still have yet to cut into a piece which is my fear but after this I think I just might be able to!! I'm really pleased how the jacket looks. I kind of feel like I should do more but I also feel like I should keep it simple like the crane panel on the back.
