Embellished Garment

This is one of my recent projects. It is a sample for the Bernina Software Sampler Class that I host at Mea Bernina. One of the new--to me--techniques is using paintstiks on fabrics. On this garment, I stitched on raw-edge batik flowers and then embroidered a design. Then I used stencils and paintstiks for the rest of the design. Thanks to my stitching friend, Diane for the use of her paintstiks. You may have to enlarge the photo to see the details. This is a shirt I would wear. Then next one is a little more jazzed-up. We'll see how that turns out...
