I have recently bought a book by Myfanwy Hart called ‘The Embellisher: Lets Get Started!’ and decided to work through some of it. It’s a good, easy to understand book for a beginner. Myfanwy appears to be the authority on embellishing in the UK, she trades as Winfred Cottage, has several different blogs and runs a Yahoo group – Embellisher Art Postcards.
This was my first attempt.
A white felt base with snippets of organza and yarn from Colinette Yarns. I think I will now add some hand stitching to complete it.
I then went on to make another one with layered organza so that I could zap it.
Overall the piece didn’t really work but I thought some of the close up photos I took looked quite interesting.
Given time I will practise some more. I think it could soon become very addictive.
