Remember this post a couple of weeks ago when I'd been working a sample for my classes? Well, my ladies at The Letchworth Settlement have finished their first project this term using this technique outlined in Alisa Burke's book and these are the fabulous results... Denise, Barbara and Brenda all made circular garlands like my sample, with amazing results.
Anne and Di made beautiful heart shaped garlands.
And other members of the class used the technique for their own projects. Margaret mounted her flowers like a posy within a circular frame. Not sure if you can see it in the photo but she made the leaves by stitching skeleton leaves onto a felt backing. Gorgeous colours!
Catriona used hers to make a cover for her book of samples.
Jean and Ann also made book jackets. The flowers look stunning on the plain felt backgrounds.
Jenny used her beautifully stitched and beaded flowers to make cards.
Debbie made this fabulous curtain/hanging
And last but not least Jan covered an old box giving it a lovely new lease of life.
I love the way she has put a chain of flowers around the bottom as well as covering the lid.
And me... I just made another garland, but a heart shape this time.
A satisfyingly simple yet very effective project... and as ever I love seeing everyone's unique take on the same technique.
Well done ladies... fantastic!!!
