A jolly scarecrow Embroidered on Natural Muslin or Pashmina "Aged to Perfection" cotton with DMC #920 Medium Copper #8 Perle Cotton - something FUN to celebrate the season! Finish in a frame or "fabric frame" with seasonal prints.
Trace your scarecrow directly onto your fabric with a Heat Removeable FriXion Pen.
If you DO NOT LIKE TO TRACE use Stick 'n Stitch. Print your design on your copier on the Stick ln Stitch. Pull the printed film off the paper backing and finger press to your muslin fabric. Add your hoop and get stitching in just minutes - super stuff!
Finished size as shown - embroidery = 8" x 10", with borders = 9 1/2" x 12"
I added a 1 ½” border strip to each side of the finished embroidery and then to the top and bottom.
I added matching piece thin quilt batting to the back of the design with borders and cut a matching back piece.
With right sides together, sew around all sides leaving an opening to turn right side out.
Trim the corners and turn right side out. Press the outer edges flat.
Hand sew the opening closed.
I added Running Stitch “Quick Quilting” around the edge of the embroidered center close to the outer borders.
