Motif in mola mode

Here's the next paisley motif, taken from the sketchbook page in the previous post.

This is synthetic washing up cloths (much cheaper than felt and they come in a variety of textures), in cut back or reverse applique. Machine stitched in straight stitch to hold it together and ready for embellishing.

Size is again postcard size, 6 x 4. This is such a handy size for these little experiments.
