I needed a bright picture to liven up a dark spot. Daffs are coming into the shops and some people way down south have them growing in their gardens and they are such cheery flowers and come in all sorts of variety's. The top picture shows the beginings....OK so far! The backing is calico, flowers are felt and the vase is blue cotton.
Flowers on, jug sewn, backing backed. The flowers looks as tho they are already pulling the material but they arn't.
But now it all goes wrong :0( When I started to add the stalks, which were machined stitched up and down 4 times and the leaves which are appliqued on..... THEN....it all went puckered. I think maybe the problem was the thinness of the backing. Talk about being annoyed with myself, and it took longer to make than I planned!
You can't really see all the puckering in the photo, but it's there! It is hanging on the wall and if you stand away from it, it's not so bad. I have a matching picture frame and I was going to do some tulips for the other one...but might re-think it all!
Well, now onto the next project which I hope goes to plan :0D
