When I was satisfied, I stitched them all together and this was the result.
It was so relaxing and fun to do this project and I love how it turned out.
The thing is, I don't know what I will do with it. And it's probably not finished yet -- although all the pieces have been sewn down. Sewing it and seeing it all come together harmoniously was such a joy. And to think: I almost didn't make it because I didn't know what it would become! I am so glad I listened to my muse and just sewed.
Maybe I'll edge it with trims and add some fancy stitches on the fabric's borders. What would you do with it?
Other things I've made lately: another simple cuff; this one is just a muslin wrapped metal cuff onto which I glued pretty rose trim in a soft beige.
I was so excited to finish it. I always feel so enthusiastic when I start an embroidery project but by the end I'm usually chomping at the bit for it to be over.
