Time to show my finished felt/fabric piece
(of course after the Beatles song !)
It took ages to do the tiniest backstitches along the edge of the wave
Then I cut ( top, batting and backing ) just 2mm
next to the stitching
and left it raw edge which works quite well !
Sequins gave the mermaid a shiny appearance,
the embroidery was fun to do
and everything came perfectly together,
from the seahorses ....
.... to the school of tiny fisch
I started on the new felt/fabric piece :
for that I chose the dark blue felt
I will try to make such a piece for every month of this year
and because it's 2011
they will all tell "fairy tale" stories !
( 11 = elf = fairy )
