Finally! I found some time this morning to retrieve my photos from the camera card only to have to spend 10 minutes trying to feed it into the reader! However, at long last, I can show you the wrap which is one of the samples for the workshop this coming Saturday.
It began as a piece of devore, I used half the width of the fabric and a 2m length. Before laying out I made a piece of silk covered Merino prefelt which I then cut into small leaf shapes. The fabric was laid upside down and covered with two very fine layers of Merino which I then extended off the edge of the fabric to form a frill. On top of that I laid some more silk and the leaves.
You can see it’s a goodly size when finished and thanks to the devore it feels so warm and luxurious.
Such a grogeous wrap should surely have it’s own flower corsage?
I’m very pleased with it and I even like the neutral colour, not like me at all! You know I couldn’t leave it there and so I have made a more colourful turquoise and black version which I promise to show as soon as I have daylight for the photos. Sadly, it will be next week before the opportunity arises as it’s still showtime across at Adelaide Walker. Perhaps I’ll see some of you at the Country Living Christmas Show in Harrogate – it runs from tomorrow 3rd December to Sunday 6th.
