FAF Fabric Page for Carol


I finished Carol's fabric page for Fiber Art Friends page swap. Carol chose the theme of creamy/white. This was a great page to do, as I used a technique which I had read about in Stitch magazine and really wanted to try! Items are sandwiched between 2 layers of calico and stab stitched into place, which then creates a raised image. I used various buttons for the flowers, some paper string for the stems and stuffed some calico for the rocks. I then embellished the top with hand and machine stitching, and also added some flowers made from chiffon.
