We’ve lived in our house together and been married for almost a year, so it was time to add our family crest to the place.
I pay way too much attention to the back of my embroidery. Especially since it was covered up anyway. I just don’t want people in the 18th century to think I had loose morals because the back of my embroidery is all messy.
This kind of embroidery is the most fun. If I was around in the 18th century, I would have been cranking out the embroidery.
When that part was finished, I asked it what it felt like being. It said a flag, so then came some triangle math.
I used more leftover wedding fabric scraps for the back. It seemed fitting.
Then I sewed it all up, added some hanger loops, and stitched the edges. And someday, if someone rips it all apart, they will see how neat the back of my work looks.
Love it all, great work.
