How to Use Shisha Mirrors with Jamie Malden
Embroidery • Educational, G, 01-Nov-2017
These little pieces of mirror come in a wide range of shapes and sizes and add a little bit of light and glamour to your work.
Jamie shows how you can start off with the shape as inspiration for your embroidery, which can then evolve with more stitching. The work doesn’t have to remain traditional. It can evolve into something quite contemporary and/or be used to cover books, notepads and even a cover for your laptop, which Jamie is particularly fond of.
If you have been inspired and want to purchase any of the products Jamie mentions – just go to her website.
