One By Machine, One By Hand

I didn’t get as many color studies done this week but I still got a hand stitched one and a machine stitched one completed.

 

The hand stitched one is violet, blue and yellow orange. You can’t really tell from the photo but the darkest large French knots are violet and blue. They look very similar in the photo. I had to make a little frame for this one otherwise it looked silly.

This is the one completed on the sewing machine. It is cut back applique and supposed to be yellow, green and red violet. But I didn’t think about putting the yellow cotton organdy over the green fabric so now it reads yellow green. I should have made the back fabric yellow instead of green. I used one of my circle designs from my circles studies in Level 3 Art and Design. So anyone that was asking what I would do with all the work and designs from Level 3, here’s an example.

  1. Your cutting back on the applique is very neat! Even though the yellow turned to yellow green it still looks good. Reverse applique is harder to get right, colourwise, than traditional applique.

  2. Your circle design is great & the reverse appliqué very neat. You are certainly trying out different colour-ways.
    Did/do you use ‘French’ or ‘Colonial’ knots?

Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear your comments so please let me know what you think.
