I posted about creating a sample for the 3rd Quarter Challenge in July. I decided to add some free motion machine stitching. Once I got into the studio, I found a piece that I thought would work well in combination with my sample.
This was a sample that I created for my free motion machine stitching on felt online class.
I found a thread that I thought would work with the gold colors above and stitched around the circles.
I then added more stitching to the background in a “quilting” pattern. This was the same kind of stitching I used on the gold piece and I thought it would help coordinate the two.
Then I took a deep breath and cut the two pieces up. This was the plan for arranging the pieces and then stitching together with a zig zag stitch.
As you can see, the stitching made the felt a bit wonky and I didn’t take the time to baste the pieces together or add a stabilizer to the back. So wonky it is!
Here’s the back and it could be reversible. Now what to do with it? I kind of like the shape but I guess I could cut it into a long rectangle. Or perhaps it could be a book wrap? I’ll have to think about what other 3D things I might could create with it.
