Sew In Love - Hand Embroidery

A few months ago I found a book that would help me enhance my beading and embroidery skills. Although it looks pretty once completed, it is a bit time consuming to start off with. As I continue to expand my sewing skills, I am becoming more fond of beading because after I got the hang of it, I realized it was much easier to do, (well certain things), and I found myself experimenting with a few patterns and styles. Below are some of my samples I wanted to share with you guys.

I used a standard embroidery hoop and sequins and beads that you can find at any craft store. The black fabric is a chiffon. The last time I attempted to do something like this, I was still in school and made a flower. This time I opted for something that could either create a pattern or fill in a large space.

It was a little difficult to get a really good picture of this because the sheer reflected off the camera making it extra shiny. Also I have learned that some photos are best taken during the day if you can help it. I didn't have the natural sunlight, but it still came out where you can see the detail.
