A NEW PILLOW

Don't you just love this image. This is an image that I transfered using freezer paper and muslin. I have fell in love with this method. I have some watercolor pencils and used them on her face. The rest has been embroideried using different threads. The bow on her neck is silk ribbon and little pearls on her hat and one little pearl on her ear. I had so much fun doing her that I have almost finished another lady done in black and white. Here is the pillow completed. I love all the different fabrics showing her off. The back is black. I'll show you the other one when it is completed.

Hope you enjoyed the visit and have a wonderful day.

Oh my goodness Pat she is gorgeous!! Can you share "the method" with us or is it a secret?. I'm thinking you printed an inkjet image onto freezer paper (don't know which side though) then ironed it onto fabric...am I anywhere near the mark??...lol
Love seeing your work its just lovely.
Kind Regards
Judith

Wow Pat,
You really brought her to life. Someday we're going to have to get together so you can teach me stitches. Guess what? My scrim supply is dry! Hancock isn't selling it anymore. I guess I'm going to have to order it online. I do have a box for you. Nothing much but I think you can use it. Email me your address. Lisa
