Doodle-a-day September – Day 2

03 Sep 15

Today’s prompt was ‘Vibrant’. I wanted to do something more tactile today, and I had some bright rainbow coloured thread I wanted to use, so I figured I’d do a bit of lettering for this one and embroider it.

Firstly I drew the word with a brush marker to get the style of lettering I wanted, then I transferred it onto some fabric using carbon paper.

Seriously though, how pretty is this thread…

Sewing was pretty straight forward, I just sewed straight lines diagonally and filled in the shape.

The finished result isn’t as easy to read as I’d have liked but I really like the effect of the embroidered lettering, it’s certainly vibrant! Will definitely be doing more!
