How i Paint my Stitcheries


I mix 50 50 of both water and Textile medium together.


Then i dip the brush into the mixture and wipe it over the end of the pencil until you have colour on your brush and then just paint your drawing in, i use Derwent water colour pencils which i bought at Office works


Then just stitch your design with your embroidery thread .


And then you iron it to set the colour into the fabric,so easy.
Hope this tutorial is of help to the ladies that asked me how to do it.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
Cheers Shez xx

    What fabric did you paint on? Is it linen?
    Thank you also for showing how you mix your paint!
    Your hexies look so precise, hope my effort will look as neat as yours, although I won’t be able to start just yet.

  8. Your work is gorgeous! I'm wondering --- after setting the color with your iron, is it then washable? Or will it fade out or run if washed? Thanks for your instructions. ---"Love"

  12. This is a great technique that you have here. I use the same pencils, but usually I just color directly on the cloth then apply the medium. I am going to try your way the next time. Thank you for sharing this technique with us.
