It might be easier to do a cross-section of a nautilus shell, rather than the whole thing. The cross-section is also really pretty - you could applique bits of lace to the tulle to suggest the shell's chambers.
I had not thought about that approach. It is really pretty-you are right.
I still am a little perplexed on how to make it happen. But I think I need to just break out fabric and start experimenting. The getting started part is the bane of my crafting existence! Once I start, I am good to go though.
I appreciate it! Thanks
