so I pulled it apart and started to fool around with it.
there was too much color in it, to leave it the way it was. to confusing to the eye as there was no place to " rest" and too much to take in at once.
so I auditioned a bunch of colors for the background.
black seemed to work best and as the only black velvet I could find, had some stretch to it, I used a muslin backing on or it would have distorted the moment I hung it on a wall!
this is my "orts bag" I had to experiment with the cuts so the first 1/2 yard or so was sacrificed to the sewing gods.
once I got the positioning right, it was easy.
|making it square|
I ended up pulling thread on it at least a half dozen times!
so how many of you use your tile floor to square up a big piece?
I sure comes in handy when I can't do it by ruler alone!
just for giggles here I am trying to get the best picture.
when inspiration takes you, you sew in your nightie too don't you?
