Now, back to the fabric!!
This is the fabric after all the bits were placed and fused down.
That is just the beginning!! Here is the peice shown in close up, after I have done all sorts of free motion stitching in bright orange and bright pink thread. I love the texture that the stitching adds!!
This is another portion of the same piece. I am really pleased that my control of the free motion stitching seems to be getting better. Stitching without a pressor foot and with the Feed Dogs down is quite disconcerting at first!!! But I am getting used to it!!
This is a shot of a portion of the back of the piece so you can see the amount of stitching that I did.
Now I will start adding all of the beads and couched ribbons and sequins to the fabric. This will be a great traveling project!!
When we return , I will be posting with all sorts of fun pictures of our trip and the projects that I worked on while gone!! Have a great couple of weeks!! Enjoy your summer!!!
