My pencil sketch above
I was asked by Jenny Hart if I would be interested in creating a pattern of belly dancers for her fabulous company Sublime Stitching. I said YES YES YES - I was thrilled! Jenny has pioneered to transform the traditional craft of embroidery into a contemporary art form - "This ain't your gramma's embroidery!" is her motto. It certainly isn't! One look on her website and you will see what I mean. Her efforts to revolutionize needleworking has earned her media fame and a loyal following of fans from all walks of life. Her website features over 50 (often edgy) patterns, textiles, tools, all-in-one embroidery starter kits and entertaining, now-I-understand-it instructions to bring embroidery back to life for a new generation of needleworkers. Be sure to check out her shop. After you order your supplies and settle in to embroidery these belly dancers, you can listen to this belly dancing music and really get in the mood!
