Almost Finished!

Yesterday I chose the base fabric for my row house pins. The next step was embellishing the fabric and stitching all over it with Sulky Sliver Thread. Then the embroidery machine did its work! I still have to trim the threads from the edges of the houses. Have a look:
Before stitching

Before cutting out and snipping threads!
Ready for the backs. I use recycled leather and suede
for the backs of my wearable art pins.


  1. Very interesting Judy , I love the resulting houses !

  2. How big are these Judy? I love the houses!!

  3. Those are terrific! Wish I lived closer to go to whatever craft show you sell at.

  4. These are simply gorgeous. I've often made a similar style of background fabric but you've inspired some new ideas. Thanks.

  5. Love, love, love those house pins, Judy! Thanks for sharing your process too!
