Playing with Lutrador





I have been playing with some Lutrador, and various fibres this weekend, and have managed to make three needle cases with the piece. First of all I painted the lutrador with Jacquard textile paint, and heated it with a heat gun to distress it. I ironed on a few Angelina fibres, and some foil. I then added some dyed muslin, painted and heated Tyvek, and did some free machine embroidery on top, with some pelmet vilene underneath to stiffen it. The individual cases have beads sewn onto them, and some fancy yarn.

Stunning, Wendy - but I'm biased - probably my favourite colour combination.
