Beautiful embroidery

Pinterest, as always, leads me down the rabbit hole to new and interesting crafts (new to me, that is). Embroidery is my latest interest, and I’ve been adding it to Runny Babbits for a beautiful, hand-crafted touch.

This whole bunny was hand knit with a gorgeous iridescent yarn I found. It’s delightfully soft and I used embroidery cotton from House of Embroidery, a South African shop that hand dyes their threads. I bought some varigated, multicoloured threads and you can see how fantastic it looks as you stitch – the border changes colour as you go!

All of these photos are taken on my phone. It’s really time to start whipping the camera out!

Of course, if you have more experience and a steady hand quite fantastic things can be done with embroidery:
