a piece of handkerchief, brown / black wool, ribbon, and tatting. I later changed the ribbon flowers. You can see that they are just pinned on. The making of the envelope was challenging, but the rest was easy as pie. This will be another fun class, as any vintage piece can be added.
This next piece was the most fun and creative, as it only had two types of stitches, a star to make the eyelet, and french knots. The texture all came from the fibers used. They are silk ribbon, over-dyed pearl cotton floss, over-dyed silk thread, wool yarn, fancy yarn and beads. It is made on a large count material, so easy to pull the eyelets. This little beauty is only 3" square and makes a fun pincushion. Called "Pulled Ribbon Pincushion", we will have various small frames for your selection prior to class. This photo doesn't do the piece justice.
