Karla Krafts

This is where I log craft projects, ideas, products, materials and sources including links. I'll also document sources of inspiration. I love crafts, including knitting, quilting, scrapbooking, stained glass crafting and others. My specialties were knitted baby caps and glycerin soaps I call "Gemsoaps." Now, I'm into embroidery and beading.

Cross stitching with beads on waste canvas

This didn't scan too well, either, but I'm pretty pleased with it. I tacked a piece of waste canvas on this scrap of what looks like dupioni silk. Then I followed a cross stitch pattern with seed beads. The fabric is actually an antique gold, and I didn't have much of a selection of bead colors, so it looks like Christmas. I enjoyed the stitching and pulling the threads out of the waste canvas, too. I'll be trying this on velveteen, soon.
