Something handsewn.
One that I can tick off of my 50 things to make! Woohoo! I've started many more, but this is the first I have finished.
It's a hand stitched felt decoration, of an octave on a piano, for my friend Robyn, who is incredibly good at Music. Practically everything I make her is music orientated.
I found the inspiration on Hellocotton a while back, and I'm very pleased with how it turned out.
I used wool for all of my stitching in order to emphasise that this piece is hand stitched, not machined. It gives the piece more character, more of a rustic look, with all of the stitches uneven. It makes me feel a bit disappointed sometimes, but then I think; isn't that the charm of handmade?
