I decided to start numbering the embroidered pottery entries to keep track of them.
After beginning the lettering I thought it needed some colour, so I added a nest of pots using fabric crayons directly onto the material.
Another way of applying the crayons is to draw on paper then place the paper face down onto the fabric and iron, this transfers the reverse of your drawing onto the fabric - I've never had much luck with this method, maybe I haven't had enough crayon on the paper, but it always seems to be a very pale image.
I outlined the pots in stem stitch then filled in the colour with running stitch using matching thread.
then started the stitching on the background - I'm just using running stitch at the moment, similar to kantha style work.
