I’M GOING TO BE A GRANDMA! (and I already have a cap and sweater knitted for my grandbaby–Petula models here. The sweater is an easy pattern from Carol Duval that I modified with ribbing to match the cap.)
Funny, huh? It’s an eyeglass case. Like my paper piecing, I start small. I’ve recently completed it and will post a photo soon.
1. The beads sit on top of the nap, so there’s lots of wiggle in the design.
2. You can’t use tweezers to remove the waste canvas because it’s too easy to pluck out the pile from the velveteen. It looks moth eaten.
I’ll be salvaging these beads after I make this post.
This didn’t scan too well, either, but I’m pretty pleased with it. I tacked a piece of waste canvas on this scrap of what looks like dupioni silk. Then I followed a cross stitch pattern with seed beads. The fabric is actually an antique gold, and I didn’t have much of a selection of bead colors, so it looks like Christmas. I enjoyed the stitching and pulling the threads out of the waste canvas, too. I’ll be trying this on velveteen, soon.
