Organza, Felt and Twin Needle.....

25th April 2015

Cold and rainy today.....

...... after food shopping I went up to my loft space for a play!

First I framed my seahorse.....


.....next drew a shell for my beach book....



....then while I was listening to an audio book I browsed my Stitch magazines for some inspiration....

.....decided to free machine petals using variegated thread and organza....


.....cut around the stitched petals using my soldering iron...


.....used my twin needle, green metallic/variegated thread, stitched wavy lines on acrylic felt....


.....zapped with the heat gun for texture....


.....added some beads to the centre of the flowers....


....made this card!!

I had forgotten how good it was to free machine on organza and use a twin needle.

Think I will take this further next week....

....watch this space!
