Suz’s Show and Tell – Silk Fusion Piece. These photos are of a silk fusion piece, made with silk hankies. I then embroidered around circles, cut out the inside, then machine embroidered over wash away stabilizer, in between the open pieces. This is a technique by Dale Rollerson.
Suz’s Show and Tell – Buttons and double buttons. I’ve been making these from an online class by Karen Ruane. These buttons etc. will adorn my wrapping cloth. The first one (to the right) is a double button and has a hanger for attaching. Doesn’t it look like a fancy macaron? The one with the poufy top reminds me of a cupcake with swirls of icing. I’m having lots of fun playing with thread and fabrics to make these.
Carol’s Little Wool Box – The top and sides of this little box are 3.75” x 3.75”. Assembled with the top closed, the box is slightly higher. The exterior of the box is covered in 100% wool and stitched with 100% wool threads. The interior is lined with dark green satin. Narrow ribbon, with wooden beads attached, and wrapped around a green satin covered button, keep the box securely closed.
