A 50th anniversary textile collage
This is the second item that I made for my Aunt and Uncle's 50th wedding anniversary (you can see the other item here). The image was printed onto vintage cotton fabric and then decorated with vintage lace and broderie anglais.
There's only a bit of embroidery on this , chain stitch around the image and french knots on the headdress and for the flowers. I've also attached some mother of pearl buttons, some worn from years of use and a few beads.
I've backed it with some more vintage cotton, and sandwiched a piece of wadding in between. It can be hung up using the two brass rings.
See you again on Thursday.
