Berries and boughs

Updated: Nov 12, 2020

I have this box of fabric remants. Its kind of like a magic lamp it never empties out and always gives. It doesn't matter how many pieces of fabric that I take out of there to sew with, the level of fabric in the box never goes down, its a magic box.

Choosing colors

Today I saw boughs and berries. Remnants of 2 sheets, 2 button down men's shirts and some of https://www.facebook.com/HighHopesDyes/ tie dyed scraps to brighten everything up.

I cut the fabric into strips and then plan my layout. There is some method to the madness, I like for the colors to flow through the work.

Planning the layout

The fun part, choosing thread color for the top stitching. I chose the one on the far right.

Choosing thread color

Stitched all the pieces together and then topstitched on my vintage Orion. Slow and steady and meditative work.
