Yippie.....I'm finally able to work without yelping....fingers are improving daily after my dramatic tumble!
The designs were the result of a 4 bath dye (separate colors for each 'dunking'). The felt was folded numerous times & secured with narrow wood slats and hair clips & strong rubber bands.
Again, as is typical....I dig through the vast collection of embellishments, (okay I'm admitting I have a LOT of beads and trinkets). The stitching seems to go more smoothly once I have a 'pallete' to work with. However, it often takes me an hour plus to make those initial decisions! Mainly, cause I really don't have a clue what I'm going to do until I pick up the needle.
The beginning.....some hand stitching has been added to the left side using variegated thread. Before deciding whether or not I want to duplicate that same stitch pattern on the right, I'm going to begin adding some beads.
Let's see what happens.......
