zodiac embroidery

Inspiration Pin, here.

Piece of painters' tarp + embroidery hoop + dye + plastic zipper bags (perfect for dyeing a small amount of fabric)

Dyed fabric, ready to stretch in the hoop after ironing

Stretched and stitched with antique silk thread (French knot tutorial here)

The back.

And now it's ready to be a birthday present for one of my favorite ladies. I wonder if she'd guess it's for her? ;)

Thanks for reading!

p.s. you can make these photos larger just by clicking on them, but you probably already knew that, clever you.
