These close up photo's are of the closure treatment...wire crochet and a button, bead. The dream of finding a real pearl in those beautiful waters around Croatia did seem real!!
The coin purse sits inside.The person who bought it is going to a posh doo on Saturday and she will be using it...it never even made it for public view!!
Hot in the City, Hot in the City....tonight....(wish I knew how to get the sound track on!!!).
After that success I decided to make another fabric....perhaps this is my niche??
So I thought I would challenge myself (oh dear!) I was to use colours that I'm not so attached too and I would try to make half a metre of it in one full piece HA!
So I swirly free-hand machine embroider over the organza and then artistically (!) cut away to revel the base cloth.
.............to this....with organza overlay.....I'm now considering my next move....red sparkly thread....red thick wool...have got some handmade organza ribbon, red or yellow ribbon, gold sequins.....ooooo the possibilities!!
Watch this space for the next layer of surface treatment of 'Hot in the City'!!
