I should be/am slowly working on Samara, but i keep returning to the ethnic embroideries of Central Asia.
What if i did this sort of thing:
Admittedly, silk velvet , *any* velvet is a bitch to sew, slipping, sliding and slithering everywhere but where it’s supposed to go, BUT. I have more patience now with my work, and intend to this all by hand, so maybe a lot of pinning and bulldog clipping?
Or mix with some of the other recent textured fabrics? Yup.
