Enlarged and simplified fabric design.
Hi and welcome to my blog. This is where you can find out what mischief is happening in my sewing room.

My current project is based on the portrait of Eleanor of Toledo. I have just finished the pattern layout and am about to start cutting fabric for the applique. The fabric in the portrait appears to be a cut voided silk or similar, but as I can't find a suitable modern fabric I have decided to applique black and gold velvet onto a background of white delustered satin. It might take a while but it will be worth it.
