Here’s a look of today’s work…..
As you can see some of it is applique, with free hand stitching over it for detail and texture, and the rest is needle felting. some sequence too. Quite fond of it.
Apologies for angle of pic, my light shade kept getting in the way..really have to spend time photographing work but hey..I’,m usually so tired after the work, and excited to blog so tough 😉
here’s the start of a new piece …
STEP BY STEP
I drew the image in its entirity in pencil.
I laid out fabric scraps onto felt and secured into shape with pins.
I also covered areas, such as the leaf on top right hand corner, and claws that I will remove after.
I stitched onto felt and free hand stitched some detail.
I didn’t secure fabric over claws/leaf but removed after or will when felting..easier to make it appear seamless at later stage.
reference the LAZY ALICE post..
So you can see I discarded the leaves and replaced them with berrys.
Mainly because i wanted to simplify the colour scheme, and that the berrys refernce the vintage look I adore.
