What materials did you use? The background fabric is a soft batik print, embellished with a variety of couched cords, yarn, and beads. A multitude of decorative machine stitching curves around the couching, adding hand stitches and beads to completely cover the background.

What are you most proud of? I love it all! I am especially happy the way the leaves turned out and my clever idea to attach them with little Velcro pieces so they can easily be removed and not get crushed.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time and enjoy the process. It takes a lot of time but is well worth the effort!

Beautiful, I love the way the leaves look like they are floating on the water.
