Be inspired by how to paint a background on fabric. Learn the type of fabric to choose and how to make it colour-fast. Learn basic art principles and construct a design. Finally, embroider and embellish your design on your painted background.

This image is an example of Bev Tully's embroidery - see link below for further examples.
