Standard

This is a wall hanging that has been dyed a deep true red.  Then circles were drawn and stitched.  The circles were covered with plastic wrap and tightly wrapped at the base with twine, then over dyed several times in indigo to achieve a saturated color.  The bottom of the piece is made using a water soluble stabilizer and stitched incorporating some velvet circles to continue the pattern.  I used a combination of threads to obtain the color of the portion above it.
