Another flower inspired by Wendy Dolan


 12th July 2021

I decided to make an iris with help from a book by Wendy Dolan...

....drew an outline on tracing paper with help from Google and copied onto 'stitch and tear' paper...


...the fabric background was made from a variety of torn strips and some hand embroidery for extra texture....



....painted with dyes...


...organza was tacked onto the front...


.....stitch and tear was stitched around the template from the reverse...


...stems were machine embroidered...


....more texture was added using layer of organza, fleece and french knots...


....I have really enjoyed the process and am planning at least 2 more so watch this space!
