Mindful stitching

May 17, 2017

i decided to learn this craft after seeing few images on IG and Pinterest (of course!). I liked the concept of using fabric scraps to mend or create new textile.

Ellie @petalplum has an e-course online and since I’m in love with her works, accent (she is Australian) and tutorials; I decided that slow stitching was going to be my next craft.

What I love is the mindfulness and process of selecting fabrics, threads and stitches, without following a rule. From small stitchings to large ones, next to each others or apart, same colour or with accents, the possibilities are vast.

Then I learnt the French knot which is incredibly cute and gives a completely different texture and interest to the fabric.

I’ve also added crosses and diagonal stitching.

It’s been a slow process. The aim was to progress every few days but without pressurising myself to have it finished by my 'one month' deadline. With this craft I wanted to enjoy the process to the fullest. The piece of white cloth (an old baby t-shirt) with the fabric scraps, needles and naturally dyed threads, are in my bag all the time, now. When I have time I just add few stitching and eventually it will be finished and I’ll make something beautiful out of it. This is one of the crafts I know, I’ll keep doing it over and over again.
