Sewing Embellishments

I had the urge to do some sewing – a touch of embroidery and this week Papertake Weekly has a stitching theme – real or faux. So here is a little embroidery strawberry for you – not that I am trying to hold onto summer or anything.


Materials:
Paper – made by me
Card – white cardstock
Other – embroidery threads; cotton calico; metal frame; wadding; finemarker
