Hello everyone, it has been a busy three weeks but I have The little peacock sewing etui below is designed by Jenny Adin-Christie and this was where I was up to the last time
I had sewn the inner potion of the tail and had began to sew the feathery stitches in a metallic thread. The next challenge was to add the fettuccini ribbon to the outer edges. The ribbon is beautiful when you get to grips with working with it as it does fray so easily. It does give a wonderful shiny texture to the tail. I did not try to get the two sides symmetrical as I think this would have been near impossible.
The picture below shows an afternoons work! So it was very slow going.
Many thanks for popping in and look forward to catching up in three weeks time.
