I used to teach shisha embroidery and thought that the same idea could be used with Ultrasuede circles instead of mirrors or sequins. It worked mostly because I used a Big Shot cutting tool to cut the circles.
The center is quilted using beads around the circles. The border is machine quilted.
The threads are Perle cotton, matt silk, and embroidery floss.
This is another of the appliques I did ages ago and finally stitched. The lace was on the free table at the Vancouver Spinners Meeting the last time we were able to meet in person. It is machine quilted.
Finally getting back to machine knitting and trying to relearn it. It’s amazing how fast you forget and my last German Shepherd must have thought it was a threat as he always tried to bite the carriage. My present dogs don’t seem to care.
I doing the Knit Weave function as it lays flatter and I like the fabric it makes. Each side is different but nice. The photo shows both sides and the pattern looks different on each side which is fun.
I have another started but the bad air from the forest fires meant I couldn’t get to the garage room where the machines were.
