The Birmingham Embroiderers' Guild are having their summer party next Monday, and a competition is being held with the theme 'happy days'. My initial idea was to stitch something related to Happy Days, that didn't quite work out as I couldn't find my heat transfer pen to transfer something onto denim. I then just started machine embroidering flowers onto the denim, and from there grew the above flower garden.
I embroidered the flowers first, and then quilted it with green on the front and pink on the back. I used an old skirt from the backing fabric and the denim came from a favourite, but worn out, pair of jeans. The binding fabric comes from the last Bolt End Club package I received.
