Playing!!

17th October 2013

Another busy day, Pilates, washing, ironing, shopping and best of all playing!!

I used my soldering iron to make some Christmas Trees, probably for cards, and making a decoration for my Unit 4 sketchbook.

Middle tree using polyester lining, 3 layers, outer trees have organza over the lining. I quite like the effect of the organza, it looks frosty.


My Unit 4 sketch book needed a tie so I made one using braided organza with tassels on the end!
Also from the same organza made the flower decoration using Bondaweb to attach.


Next I wanted to do something with my 'raspberry ripple' silk creation (can't really call it paper!)

I had some thin pelmet vilene in my stash and cut 2 squares and ironed onto the silk, one on each side.



I made 3 braids with the Throwsters Waste silk and stitched onto the square, then decorated with programmed stitches.

Thought it might look good on the cover of  a drawing book.


No blog tomorrow as I am travelling down to London to visit my lovely family!!
