Yesterday I managed to do some more sewing on my new machine, Ive been feeling really ill for the last few days and have been unable to do any sewing so when I finally sat down in front of the machine yesterday I was raring to go and get stuck in!
I finished off a piece I began working on before my health threw a wobbler, this is a sheet of layered fabric I created by sewing together a layer of painted Lutradur, pressed Angelina Fibers, Skeleton Leaves and some tiny snippings of yarns and threads. I used a sheet of fusable webbing to press the layers together so I could sew them with ease.
Here is what the Angelina & Lutradur piece looked like before I added the flowers and further embellishments, its very shiny and sparkly and doesnt photograph very well:
Below is the finished piece, I hand sewed the silk flowers on using a nice variegated pearl cotton and added further machine stitches using yellow thread for contrast and then sewed it onto a layer of dark blue felt. I know the border is wonky – its intentional (so I keep saying) Im thinking of putting some eyelets into it and converting it into a wall hanger.
Heres the finished piece:
