    Embroidering with Angelina Fiber

    I had a request to show pictures of two picture frames that I made. The blue one is with the design my teacher made and you can see the shine on the snowman which is the Angelina fibers showing thru. The second, I modified. The inside of the picture frame was from a single design (not a picture frame) that I modified to put in the center so if you don't have a picture in it you still have something to look at. You can see the center snowman doesn't have a sheen to it because I didn't use the fiber on it; just on the outer frame snowman.

    I'm trying new things and would to start selling them when I get better or have more of what I now know how to do. Thanks for looking.

    It really reminds me of mohair. Its has the finish like mylar when it's ironed. You have to becareful not to iron it too much or it'll get too dark. I get it at my LQS but you can also order it online. They even sell a film. I like the fiber because you can mix it with other colors and get different results.
