Slow stitching broadcloth 1
Join me on my slow stitch journey working towards making a bed cover. I will be looking at the colours I use in upcycling a broadcloth curtain bought at a Flea Market. You can see how I add fabric and stitches - each piece will be appliqued with a flower cut out from my fabrics. I will be demonstrating a bullion stitch in this video. Using complementary colour combinations to create slow stitch to please the eye.
Slow Stitching Fabric books
#slowstitch Slow Stitch Fabric Books - A selection of slow sitched fabric books #fabricbooks #stitchbooks - I will show you my recent stitching which has been made into journals to keep slow stitching in or a combination of papers and stitch pieces. The books are loosley bound to allow for adding or removing pages, which makes them versatile for use with your projects. Fabrics, silks, linens and cottons.
#Roxysjournalofstitchery - Completed January Block
#Roxysjournalofstitchery - Here is my completed block, the piece is very textural. Today I finish off the piece with the addition of a button in the middle of a flower and some glass beads on the antique laced flower. Adding the beads was a little troublesome, as the beads were small and the it posed a problem getting the needle through them.

Slow stitches on fabric can be used for journal covers or other projects. I will show you a running stitch and a stab stitch (seed stitch) to use on your fabric in this video. Watch out for more videos for more progressive stitching. Please sign up to my channel or subscribe to my page on Julie Leggett Art Created by InShot:https://inshotapp.com/share/youtube.html
Slow stitching projects. A catch up on my previous slow stitch pieces and a look at some new slow stitching on free motion machine pieces. I use fabric pieces to build up and often roller brush some white gesso (white acrylic paint) over the fabric, allow to dry and then freestyle machine stitch; this allow the images free stitched to pop out or show up better.

Slow stitching on finished broadcloth bed throw. The addition of words in couching No 3
#slowstitch This is a follow on from slow stitching on vintage broadcloth videos one and two. The broadcloth is slow stitched and stitched together as a throw/bed cover. It has turned out really contemporary I think, beautiful bright colours throughout the piece. I am showing you today how it has turned out. I have decided to stitch on words throughout the panels and today I will show some couching of letters onto the piece.
Slow stitching onto abstract painted fabric 1
Slow Stitching into dyed fabric. A new project showing you how to paint your fabric and slow stitch into it in a spontaneous freeing way. This is a great way to free up and stitch into your produced spontaneous result, create and work out what you want to do as you go along. Stitch, embelish and see how your work develops. In this video and old bed sheet 100% cotton - Brusho acrylic spray paints, Kuratake (japenese watercolour paint set) which are really vibrant and great to use. I have a large selection of fine sewing wools ( I picked these up at a car boot so I cannot tell you where to get them from) there are lots of wools for sewing available from sewing, haberdashery and on line. Other embroidery cottons used are DMC threads, again any sewing threads according to your choice would be ideal. I used some Liquitex acrylic inks on the orange themed cotton sheet. I advice using this sparingly as it goes a long way.
Stitch Camp - Part Two
Welcome to part two of my stitch camp pieces. In this video we look at the two pieces of marked fabric and start to cut up the fabric into fairly small pieces (I chose 3inces x 2 inches) Your pieces could be cut into whatever size you feel works for you. I demonstrate the process of matching up the pieces together, looking at colour, formation and patterns - starting to decide on pieces of material to blend into the pieces is a good exercise of colour and pattern blending using stitch and added applique. Part three I will do some sitching of the pieces and show you how far I have got.
