Take a pile of hand-dyed silks, cheesecloth, velvet, cotton, brocade, ribbons, fancy yarns (and in the background, there, the kitchen sink). Cut little snippets, here and there, onto the sticky side of some freelace paper. Put the transparent sheet on top. Stitch like mad, all over, but leave some areas – maybe some silk bubble clouds – unstitched, except around the outsides.
Then throw the piece into a bowl of water for a few minutes, rinse, pat and dry. Et voila, a tiny woodland garden….
Now, make some more. How about a coordinating ribbon?
