I don't have much to show for my week......though with another baby due in our family any day now.....I've gotten started on a gift.
I reinforced a piece of National Nonwoven's woolfelt with Pellon's lightweight non-fusible interfacing, along with some simple wavy machine stitching.I paired some hand-dyed cotton cording with a variety colors of woolfelt. The cording was secured by hand couching.
The flag shapes were drawn on freezer paper, pressed to the woolfelt and cut out.
The top corners will all be tacked with beads, providing a 3-D appearance.
The edge finishing is still being pondered about.....however, once the baby's name is revealed, I plan on printing each letter of the entire name onto muslin and applying them to the flags, or maybe just stamping them in white or black textile paint....hummmmm.....hopefully the name will fit in a pleasing manner!
I'll continue to document this project as it proceeds......
