water flower "arty girlz" flower challenge
I sewed my nuno felted piece to canvas with papers underneath..you can just about see them showing through. Chain stitched a silk painted flower that I painted last week to the centre. Around the edges I have sewed beads and sequins. I sewed the background using metallic thread which is a right pain to sew with on a sewing machine as it keeps snapping..so does anyone have any tips or know what tension to put the sewing machine on to make it easier??? There is loads of texture especially from the felted wool to this piece as I love anything with texture or dimension.
