TAST 2012 logo

There were many visitors, new followers and comments on my embroidery for the TAST 2012 logo at Pintangle. As a thank you I want to share the making of the embroidery on the cover for my TAST fabric book. The border is one of Sharon's Friday freebies. First I ironed a piece of freezer paper to the back of my fabric. After centring the border pattern upside down on the freezer paper, I secured it with masking tape. The freezer paper makes it easier to draw on the fabric. I didn't took a photo of this part, but I made a photo of it when I was working on my embroidery Touch (currently my blog header).

After tracing the design on the fabric with a water soluble pen I removed the pattern and did the same with the letters TAST. I used a light box for the tracing, but a window works fine too. I stitched the border pattern in Caron Wildflowers in stem stitch, open chain stitch and raised close herringbone. I stitched the letters TAST in backstitch with 4 threads of silk floss.

I figured some of you might want to stitch 2012, so I made a pattern for that too. The font is called Colonna MT.
