After ironing freezer paper to the felt body on this galloping little horse
I was able to cut my sketch with little stretching. Then just peeled it off
so I could applique and embroider the details. The wax surface held just
long enough for cutting-no residue.
I ordered a bit of silk velvet for more applique. Somehow hearts came from
working with soft velvet. The sewing down was so gentle, velvet seems
to love being sewn. I know I enjoyed the feel of it under my needle.
Years ago I used to carve stamps so got them out and experimented.
Dated my Ranger Archival black ink pad when I opened it 2/24/14.
It was a soft grey on fabric now ( a bit dry). Perfect for soft impressions.
The grand boy is visiting. Harry Potter marathon and a happy puppy
who loves running after him. Good long days to enjoy.
