Sparkly seed bead gift
What is 'Sparkle Friday'? It's one of those things that you do with a friend and it sticks. Picture Paula and myself in the infant school playground (many years ago), every Friday wearing sparkly eye-liner, for no reason what so ever than to be sparkly. So when Paula had a special birthday recently I got to work on this gift.
I got the frame from IKEA and made the message fit the gap! I stitched the words using a free-machine technique, having transferred the image in reverse on the back of the fabric. A tiny needle, tiny seed beads and some simple embroidery stitches and here you have it!
Here's to Sparkle Friday & a smashing birthday to Paula xxx
