I took the transfer and enlarged it on a photocopier. I then cut out the shapes on a stiff paper to make a pattern. The flower shapes were cut from velvet and embroidered on the black background.
A few beads added the finishing touches.
The following photos show the colours I have in the 8/2 Tencel. This thread is the thicker one of the Tencel range - equivalent to about pearl 8. It is a lovely thread and easy to work with.
The new product I have been dyeing is a Merino Felt about 1mm thick. This is a great fabric which is easy to stitch on. Because it is compacted, it will not fray. I will do a small project and post some colours next time, along with pictures of my latest embroideries.
