Work in Progress: Day SIX !!

It has been a busy busy two weeks or so… nothing much achieved in the sewing room, but here is my 6th day’s efforts…. these days are not consecutive, there are varying gaps between….. Haha looks like I doubled up there! Dunno how that happened! So to day six – making foliage confetti style – this is then laid on a tulle base and covered with a wash away stabiliser, stitched, and washed.

Selection of green batiks for leaves - cut up into small slivers.

Rinseaway washed out,  the leaf clumps have been dried and cut away with a soldering iron from the base tulle, ready for appliquéing on to the tree.
