Butterfly and Dragonfly Stitcheries
The Butterfly Stitchery is from Sue Spargo’s Craftsy class. the butterflies are appliqued onto cream-colored wool felt. I didn’t know I should add an iron stabilizer to the back of it before stitching on it. I will add a stabilizer in the future before I begin to stitch the front.
The Dragonfly Stitchery is my own creation inspired by Ms. Spargo’s Butterflies. I used a cream-colored woven wool for the base or background.
Both stitcheries are embellished with glass beads, buttons, and various types of threads including cotton, rayon, silk and wool. I used several different types of fabrics in both stitcheries, they include: cotton, satins, silks, velvets and wool felts and woven wools. Other trims are made of polyester and rayon fibers.
Both stitcheries are waiting to be quilted. I’m not sure what I will use for the binding. I may used several of the fabrics I used on the backgrounds. I’m sure what ever fabrics, I use they will be cottons.
Do you have a work in progress? Please leave a comment telling me what it is.
Until next time,
