At the same time I was thinking deeply about my wardrobe. The full explanation is for another post. However one conclusion I came to was that I want the things I wear to be interesting, unexpected and things that I enjoy.
My mind wandered off to a plain lightweight jacket that I should wear more often. It is perfect for cool Spring or Autumn days, where you need something but nothing heavy.
And then the question/suggestion: “Why don’t I embroider patches for the pockets?”
So I did.
It was fun to play with different threads from my stash, including one that has long pink threads embedded in it. And more coral knot stitch.
The patches are only hand sewn on, so are easily removed if I decide to go back to plain ~ or desire different unexpected patches.
odd unexpected combination, but the patches make me smile. (I am eying off the yoke at the moment!)
This stitch-a-long is for personal stitching. There is a group of us who post every three weeks. Follow the links as there is such a wonderful diversity of stitching going on in the group.
I respectfully acknowledge the traditional custodians of this land on which I live and sew – the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung People of the Kulin Nation, their spirits, ancestors, elders and community members past and emerging.
