|"On a Lark" by Karen K. Stone|
Adding loads of fibres is great fun. They totally change the look of the piece, and feel lovely to touch as well - I used a variety of sheer and fancy ribbons, wools, and sari ribbon.
I'm not working on a regular shape and you'll see why at the end. Once home, I added many more fibres from my stash and things progressed along. We have just had a long weekend in New Zealand, and I managed to complete this project :
Some close-ups to show the gorgeous textures
Love the way the sari ribbon frays as shown above. Then I trimmed the piece ready to put it together
Here's the completed fabric folder - I used the same variegated thread in the top and bobbin, and went around the raw edges and joined seams with a machine satin stitch. Click on the photos to see them larger.
