I have been stitching for about 17 years and I have never used even weave or a wooden hoop.
Today I can cross those items off my list of stuff I haven't worked with yet. In fact those two things are the only items on said list. (hehe)
I normally use metal tension hoops, and aida fabric.
This particular project I just finished is for a friend's wedding present. I can post it here because I don't think that she knows that this blog exists. It will be made into a wall hanging that my sister and I are working on together.
I use a free chart from DMC for the shoe, and my sister made up the little poem.
Our friend has a sign that hangs on the outside her door to her apartment that says something about no shoes allowed. It's just a piece of paper, and we thought that this looks way more classier.
I am very proud of how the lettering turned out. I really haven't done a project with words. And with this fabric was a bigger challenge, but a lot of fun.
