The next stitched-up installment of text-twisting. Apologies for the pretty crappy photo (I was using the other camera, but it’ll do as a snapshot for now.) If you’re familiar with the Cadbury’s chocolate bar ‘Wispa’, and the George Michael song ‘Careless Whisper’, you’ll see what I did here. Yes. (Just don’t expect to find it on my Ipod, because I’ve been on Black Sabbath all afternoon…)
From the side-on view, you can see just how much height is achieved by the preliminary padding.
Work in progress. Purple cotton background with padded white PVC applique, on top of which individual letters have been added in several layers of felt. Red metallic passing thread couched down, two strands at a time, to the contours of the shape. Afterwards,each letter was edged in purple couching and the ‘Careless’ logo stitched on in gold filament.
Let me know what you think!
