Pretend I'm Not Really Here

In case you're still on the fence about trying crayon tinting embroidery, here's a tutorial from Lauren at Pimp Stitch to get you started. And, if you need some inspiration, check out Flickr's Tinted Linens group. (Hey, look at that. I'm a member. It's amazing what little I retain these days.)

Also on Pimp Stitch are instructions from Missy on adding fabric to your embroidery. I have to try this.

Back to my blog break.

Tinted and embroidered linens...swoon! One more thing that I would love to try but can't cause I'm too busy wasting time.

I've seen this before but now I know how to do it.

Seems like a great alternative to applique for some designs.

I might even get the kids in on this.

I too do crayon tinting, sometimes with embroidery and sometimes without. I just showed two clothespin bags that I decorated with crayon tinting (but I call it just coloring fabric with crayons).Kids love doing this.
