I couldn't decide where to put this because it's quilted and
stitched, but I hope this might be the most appropriate place for it. It is just very random, very basic stitching though. I made quite a few of these sections while travelling so it was nice to have something to do, but not have to think about too much.
I saw this tutorial
on you tube by Teesha Moore and fell in love with it. I'm not really a neat person, I like raggedy edges and uneven shapes in my artwork, so it definitely suited me. Plus I have a drawer full of small pieces of fabric and little lengths of embroidery threads that I haven't wanted to throw out, so it was great to use them!
Once I started making panels I just couldn't stop! I was going to make something practical like a journal cover or a bag, but I just kept going. I guess it could be a fancy cushion if I gave it a back.
I'd like to continue to work on it and add tab tops to hang it from a curtain pole to hang from one side of our patio doors, but I'm not sure my fingers would thank me for that!
The bird in the sun is a badge by Matt Sewell, one of his cute 'Birds of the Week'
Two birds obviously not speaking to each other
Now I think about it I might add an 'X' to the black bird for his eye.
The 3 blobs are felted balls cut in half. I got a bit texture happy
I used lots of fabric and bits and bobs that other craftsters have sent me in the past, so thank you!
