This piece is the size of a piece of printer paper and done on painted fabric. The donuts are glued and then stitched in place. The beading is with sizes 8 and ll seed beads. The metallic threads are couched in place. It’s machine quilted.
At first I was going to have the rings be the bottom but liked it better this way.
I’ve been doing a lot of charity knitting and this is the latest batch of Chemo caps made from a box of Fun Furr my son’s Mother-in-law sent to me. I’ve been making them since she needed them 20 yrs. ago.
This is a design I drew many years ago and finally decided to stitch. The flower parts are outlined in Stem Stitch using matt silk thread and the center has size 11 seed beads. It is machine quilted. The background fabric is hand painted. It is Journal Quilt size.
The center is a brown and tan cabochon that I beaded around with seed beads in sizes 8, ll, and delicas. The petals are Ultrasuede and an iridescent sheer. They are machined in place and then I machine quilted the piece. To make a frame I attached more beads in sizes 8 and ll. The print fabrics are hand painted and dyed.
