Textile Tuesday - Red
This is my piece for Textile Tuesday, the word this week is RED. It is square really and mounted in red card, I took the photo at a funny angle. It measures about 8" x 6". It is a poinsettia.
The background is scraps of silk fabric tubular knitting ribbon layered under a piece of organza and bonded to a piece of synthetic carpet underlay (the flat stuff that you use instead of paper, I ran out of craft vilene).
The piece is then free machine embroidered with some hand stitching and embellished with beads.
