Working on the Green Cloth
The green cloth is gradually turning into a bag! I've spent much of my free time the past few days piecing the tiny patches together. There is something immensely satisfying about taking a handful of tiny scraps that would normally end up being discarded and turning them into a larger piece of useful cloth!
After going through my fabrics, I found a piece of wonderful sage green twill to use as the foundation of the bag. The search also resulted in a nice assortment of green fabrics for the trees. Some are velvet, others are upholstery fabrics. The brown is a strip of cut pile corduroy. A few more rabbit cutouts from the Japanese fabric will turn this into a rabbit dance! I think it needs some bluebirds too!
I'm still debating about the lace. I like the texture it offers to the piece, but think that it needs to be tea dyed to tone it down just a bit. The top rim of the bag will be bound in a narrow strip of mossy velvet, so I've left some space for that.
While I work, one of the cats is always at my side. Thomas often sits looking at me like this for long periods, especially if it's nearing time to eat!
