Trapunto Flower Design
This is a little project I started and discarded a while ago. I didn't like the echoing I did around the flower. And the pebbles? They're about the size of a pencil eraser or smaller. Time consuming! But I've kept it around as an example of faux trapunto. There's both a polyester and wool batting in this sample. I'm thinking of incorporating a similar flower in a new project.
I'd like to make a wedding gift for a couple who are getting married very soon and I need to get some sort of design figured out. Problem is, I don't know them very well. I know they aren't very traditional, but more so than the last couple who got a wedding gift made by me. I know they've got bedding with grey in it.
What to do, what to do? Visit Pinterest, I guess and look through my stash. Which is where I stumbled upon this old project. I do have a nice light grey solid that I'm planning to use. Maybe it's time to leaf through my Dover copyright free image books.
I hope to share the design with you soon!
