Constructing this piece of fabric is similar to a technique I have visited before. Snippets of fabric, free machine embroidered onto a backing (this time soluble fabric, previously used calico). Any hand stitching required is applied before the soluble backing is dissolved – this will be quite a delicate bit of “fabric” once this has been done. After completing this I was reminded of a picture I took a year ago when out walking, this prompted the choice of cretan stitch with small green beads to finish the piece.

This is a before picture. I have been working on quite a number of “fabrics” so will be dissolving the soluble fabric as part of a batch.
