All right, these first two pictures are an acrylic yarn. Thinner yarns are a bit harder to form into a spiral. What I like about this yarn(first picture) is that with all the colors there are so many different color combinations possible. And in the second picture you can see ONE of the spirals sewn down in a quilt. I am finally happy with this quilt. It took awhile. I WILL show the FINISHED quilt to you. Give me another week. Sorry.
Oh yeah, here is a Bamboo Blend thick and thin yarn. I just LOVE this stuff. In the middle of this picture you can see that I sewed a spiral down. Check out ALL THE COLORWAYS with this one yarn! Too fun.
They sort of look like they are floating. Look closer. They are felted onto bridal illusion first.
Place a square of regular netting over the spiral (this acts as a “glue” to hold it in place). “Stitch” around and around to force the yarn fibers into the bridal illusion. You felt right over the netting. It is so cool how the large holed netting just falls off.
After pulling away the large holed netting, stitch around a bit more to really secure that yarn into the illusion. It almost is an illusion, as I can barely see it in this picture. Using your scissors, cut away the illusion and you have a spiral embellishment to put anywhere on anything. What FUN!!! I can’t stop making these cuties.
Rubix (the cat) is dreaming of yarn and spirals. I better whisk this all away before he wakes up and discovers the giant roll of yarn to play with. Have a wonderful creative week. Hugs, Heidi
