Cone Flowers

Standard

Shown here is an item that I made with some of my raw silk (aka silk noil) that I also dyed.  The colors are actually shades as a wee bit of black was added to tone down the brightness.  I was looking for a more subtle palette.   Not quite sure that I achieved that, but no fabric will go to waste in any case.  Let me know what you think.

The flowers are raw edged and machine sewn on and embellished with  embroidery floss hand stitched using simple stitching.

About stitchedanddyed

Traveling a great deal as a child I have now settled in New England and it is home. When I started my blog it was mostly so that I could see my fiber works in one place and not have to go through storage containers looking for them! It helps to keep me on track and turn those UFO's into finished pieces - so far it is working. I love gathering with my family, we always have fun, usually around a meal and we laugh a lot. I love fabrics, gardening, music, reading, cooking, traveling and love being home, as well as all sorts of other things.
