What is this?
Does this look like a teabag to you?
I've been starting to experiment with digitizing my own machine embroidery designs. And this is my very first one. Why a teabag, you wonder? Well, I have set myself the task of exploring the theme of tea in a series of small art quilts, and that led me to thinking about tea bags, which set me on a course of drawing them... and then I decided to turn a little sketch into something that could be embroidered repeatedly.
It has some wonky aspects to it that need adjusting in terms of stitch density ... but does this say teabag to you? Or does it just look odd?
(My husband thought it was an iron.)
Inquiring minds want to know.
