These are the sketches for it from my sketchbook. It is a magical woodland scene with a little fairy house in the base of tree. There are lots of little details which will make it fun to sew and embroider. I was inspired by all the photos of fairy doors and hobbit house cakes I found on Pinterest!
If you look back to the second sketch you will see that I plan to stitch a leafy branch over the top part of the tree trunk. You might also notice that I had planned to have a little window next to the door but when I was sewing everything, I decided there wasn't really room for one. The sideband will be a silvery grey and the underside, navy blue. I think I will add some more red and white toadstools to the sideband. Hopefully I will get to work on this some more tomorrow but I think it's looking pretty cute so far. I really like the herringbone felted wool that I am using for the tree trunk, it adds so much texture.
