National Sewing Month

Day 23

Sand Pebbles by Christen Brown

This piece started with a beautiful vintage lace applique, backed with a sand-colored cotton fabric. I embroidered the piece with several colors of Wildflower threads from the Caron Collection, then embellished the embroidered and lace sections with vintage and new glass beads, and jewelry findings. I bordered the outer edge with a piece of Hanah silk ribbon, and a few hand-blown glass beads.

You can find this piece in my book Embroidered and Embellished by C&T Publishing.

Happy Stitching, ~Christen
