May 2012 Stitch Along, Dancing Veggies

I absolutely adore tinted embroidery. Pammy0226 crayon tinted this vintage pattern and added the cutest little ruffle. I can't believe this is her first time trying crayon tinting. It is a practice that dates back to the 1920's and rose in popularity until the 1940's. I have several pieces from the 1930's that still have their bright beautiful tint to them. If you are interested in trying this technique, there are several tutorials swimming around the internet. It is a super easy way to add a little more color to your embroidery.
