Theme - Pattern
Mmmmm the possibilities :) I wanted straight away to do 'something Celtic' .. but I do love zen doodles too..
Sunday morning I had a couple hours free.. so I doodled :)
But I still had a Celtic Beastie in mind begging to be made..
|I totally cheated by tracing the beastie out of a Celtic|
design source book :)
I sandwiched iridescent organza between the paper and
white felt and pinned.
|Free machine embroidering over the lines in the drawing..|
|All main lines are 'drawn' just pattern detailing to go..|
I carefully pulled the paper away now - the stitches perforate
the paper so it tears away easily.. just need to go round with tweezers
getting tiny bits out afterwards
|The back side|
|Front. All stitched, organza still intact|
|Carefully snipping away the excess organza close to the stitch line|
Now I'm picturing bags with beasties on the flaps.. or running up and over the straps.. Not just yet though, maybe later in the year.
