For my next few circles, I'm going to do some fabric manipulation samples.
For this first one, I cut a piece of white cotton into a rough square. Next I created little fold and pleats and secured each one down with a stab stitch. Once I was satisfied with the way it looked, I attached it to a circle drawn onto a piece of linen with irregular cross-stitch.
I then embellished the manipulated cloth with french knots and buttonhole stitched threads to create little bridges across the fabric. I love the slightly hidden places that the folds create and I'm wonder how bigger folds, with a larger hidden areas would look and whether I could 'hide' something in there. I'll explore that in me next #our52weekproject post.
Please don't forget that you can still get 10% off everything in my Etsy store till the end of tomorrow, Tuesday 25th April. Just use the code SPRING2017 at the checkout when prompted.
I'll be back on Wednesday.
