E-3 Paddle Wheel
This one is rotary cut and machine sewn. I'm not to happy with some of the seams but it isn't so bad I must start again. I'll live with it. You can only notice when you zoom in anyway.
I'm not sure I'm getting on too well with the background I picked. It's Kona Bay cotton and was recommended but it stretches so much and goes all wrinkly when you put a steam iron to it... yes I know I should be using a dry iron, I was just trying to flatten it by 'pressing not ironing' with a bit of steaming help.
Actually this cotton has a similar behaviour pattern to batik. But I bought 15 yards of it so I'd better persevere with it. That's my moan over.
I also sewed up a little something as a gifty but can't show it just yet until the person who'll receive it has got it and seen it.... wink wink say no more.... I'll post after Easter.
