"Make a structure out of wire
and cover it with fabric pieces using batik wax"
that was the Stitch Club workshop that just ended,
by Priscilla Edwards
Any thin wire could be used
but the special paper covered kind came with the mail a bit later.
I chose to make a critter in stead of a teacup
Though because I couldn't find the wax
(that I must have somewhere . . .)
I used some special textile hardener.
But first a flower to try out if this could be done !
Hmmm . . . very sticky fingers
but, it worked in the end !
Then on to the little beast : a ladybug !
Many parts to construct and fiddly to put together
but in the end it could fly !!!
Stitch Club embroidery workshop by Cassandra Dias
that came before the one by Priscilla !
so many tourists that visit The Netherlands in spring yearn for.
Though the downside of these lush coloured fields is :
the pollution with MANY pesticides !
