I needed to make something in which to contain things, and so decided to have a play with the embellisher and make a pocket, or wrap of sorts.
I am not 100% sure of what I am doing here but I purchased Embellish,Stitch,Felt by Sheila Smith and that has helped. I layered some scrim onto an off cut of wadding and ran it through the machine, adding some silk rovings, felt,velvet and voiles for texture, and then began to do some hand stitching.
It was never going to get finished that way and it was too floppy without more structure so I added some machine stitched pebbling.
Using the embellisher is a lot of fun. There is a random quality to it and I am enjoying the experimentation. I am also getting to use up lots of bits that I have accumulated. Which can only be a good thing, right?
I hope you are having a good weekend whatever you are doing.
