For one of my applique projects in Level 3 Stitch, I decided to use a nuno felted background and create a piece similar to the ones that I make to sell in a gallery. Here’s the beginning of Shades of Green. Guess what? It reminded me of a forest, so on to the applique.
I added silk organza for the tree trunks, a mix of chopped up fabric for the leaves and stitching for the highlights. The finished piece was framed and is now hanging in my hallway.
