I have been doing some research on smocking I love the look and I thought it would be fun to try!
I started mine with an 18 x 18 inch square
it is a bit hard to tell in the pic but I blocked it off in 1x1 inch squares with a 1.5 inch boarder
I drew in my stitch lines
and began to stitch
this is a back view about half finished
I added a 3 inch border and it is going to become a new pillow!
It is not perfect but I think it is pretty good for my 1st try!
finished back view.
this is the next smocking project on my list!
Hope you are having a fabulous day!
