Green Apples Table Cloth

 

Large old fashion, country style tablecloth with green apple embroidery is hand made using reverse stitch technique I have learned from the Alabama Stitch Book. The top layer is linen: ivory with pink, orange and green stripes. Underneath each motif there is a green cotton jersey panel that was hand stitched to the top layer with red cotton yarn. Each apple branch was hand stenciled using hand made stencils and red fabric paint. The embroidery runs along both long sides of the cloth.

 

The Green Apples Table Cloth is now available at my newly open Etsy store: Koti Koti

 

Size: 54 x 81.5 in.

Summer Blue

Yet, one more Anthropologie inspired creation. This time the Mill Pond Blouse was my victim. The original has a beautiful embroidery. Instead I have painted flowers using hand made stencils and fabric paint. For anyone interested in fabric painting I have used Folk Art paint. The blouse has been hand washed once in warm water and the paint didn’t bleed or fainted. I recommend it as a fast way to embelish your creations. Fabric- very soft cotton. I didn’t use a pattern.

Bubble Top

The bottom layer is a cotton tank top made out of a t-shirt because I couldn’t find the right color jersey to match the top silk chiffon layer. I added a simple applique to dress it up a little. I didn’t use any pattern, just played with the fabrics.
