I have about 25% of my mandala all stitched up. I am really liking how everything is turning out!

Thanks everyone! It was a little scary when it came time to actually cut out the petals. I needed some encouragement from sheepBlue, but in the end it wasn't that bad!
4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Stumpwork Purple Coneflower on: July 07, 2016 12:22:40 PM
At the Craftster meetup in Canada a few weeks ago, the amazing sheepBlue gave us a lesson in stumpwork. After my initial badge for the latest felt badge swap ended in epic failure, I decided to try out my newly gained stumpwork skills and create a small purple coneflower for PerfectlyBohemian.

Here is a few in-process photos:

The center was done with french knots with pearl cotton thread over a black felt base- not that you can see the felt...

Then I drew out some petals and began the process of securing the wire to the fabric.

A few split stitches later...

Then I cut the petals out, poked them through the felt base and secured them on the other side. One backing piece of felt later and the piece was done.

Now I have the urge to make everything in stumpwork!!
