Day Three in The Making of the 2012 WCHS Banner

Another two panels almost completed. One representing Olympic sports and the other to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee. I say almost completed because I need to stitch beads onto the crown but cannot do it until the whole banner is assembled.


I have left the tissue paper on the crown so that I can use it as a guide for placing the beads. It shows you how I am doing this embroidery, which is to trace a design onto tissue paper and then stitching through it. Picking the tissue paper apart with my tweezers can be a little fiddly but it’s worth it.
