My friend Shirley of SimpleSew gave me the Sew & Stitch Embroidery book by Alyssa Thomas a few months ago, and I started working on the fold over feather clutch pattern inside the book (page 111). I finished the feather over a month ago and then it sat, you see I wasn't that happy with it. 2 issues:Here is how I played with the fabric distortion:
- I used a jean like material and it was very stretchy, so there ended up being some fabric distortions.
- Said jean material is dark in color so I used tear away stabilizer to get the pattern onto the fabric.
Vera of Negligent Style's Tutorial to add the strap and she also recommended to go to a hardware store for snap hook and D-ring, which is fantastic since I am all out of those things in my sewing room. So this is the best my hardware store could do,
I'm linking up to The Purge, first linky party, cause I am sending this to a new home and it won't sit lonely in my house, I look forward to doing some more purging in the next weeks, you should join too!
Update: It is in it's new home and she LOVES IT! The interior is to her style with skulls, I only had small irregular pieces of these fabrics so I made a QAYG style lining.
