Silly stitching (with a message)
Whenever I could, I have been joining these wonderful young people who take to the streets each Friday as part of the Fridays for Future movement. I've been to large demonstrations in Munich and to much smaller, cosier ones in Murnau and Weilheim. These young people are so full of energy and creativity; it's infectious and it fills me with hope. This Friday they invite us all to stand with them in their demand for change. I hope many of you will find an opportunity to attend a demonstration near where you live. And if you are in need of some inspiration on what to wear:
If we happen to be stitcher's-bum-buddies and you feel so inclined, please copy! As most T-shirts are stretchy nowadays, I used chain stitch to accommodate for it. I found myself a nice rounded font (Comic Sans to be precise) in Word to create a pattern. The pattern was transferred onto my T-shirt using a blue aqua-trick marker. My huge stash of embroidery threads coughed up a rather brightly coloured variegated Anchor perle #8 colour 1375. Just perfect, don't you think?
When you dare to see me wear it, LOL, follow me on Instagram this coming Friday!
Oh, I know Rachel! I think this particular one came out of a for sale basket at a needlework shop that just wanted to get rid of this very, very bright fellow :).
I love your T-shirt :) What a good idea! I should start wearing them too that I were able to stitch on them :D
LOL, I knew I would be an inspiration to at least some of you!
Your goldwork for Alpine Experience interests me more... :) Do you plan to sell it as a kit or as a download instruction?
Not any time soon. Kits don't pay my bills as there is simply not enough interest. Teaching embroidery does pay the bills. In order to get as many students to sign up as possible, it wouldn't be wise to sell these kits any time soon!
Thank you Catherine! I hope we will be many colourful people on the streets of Munich :).
