I photocopied the fabric first and worked on a paper version before cutting the fabric.here are the rules.
That is a small section - I can't show it all yet.The pink sections of the fabric are proving the biggest challenge. I have only been able to use pinks in some tree trunks and my lady not seen here. In some parts as there was only a fat quarter of fabric I' ve used the tiniest pieces to make enough in some colours. A lot of the greens are blue green which is not really grass or tree colour but I am trying to make it work.
This is all raw egde applique and I have so far just used a straight stitch. Embellishing and maybe fancy stitches will happen nearer the end of the process. I have wool and beads put aside that may work.The work itself is leading me and the process. Amazingly so far no major problems or mistakes. ( plenty of time still ).
I'm not really sure why I decided to do this - it is taking hours of work.
