A WOMAN’S DREAM SHOWER, is 38” X 45” It was created for our GMQG challenge this year using repurposed material. The fabric was upholstery on my rattan set and had all women’s hats, shoes, gloves and handbags on a black background. I cut out the shoes and hats and used Fray Check around each piece. The slanted rain was created from metallic silver thread and ruler work and tape helped to keep the slant straight. Bugle beads and glass crystal beads formed the rain drops. Grunge fabric was used for creating the umbrella and background area.
It was truly a labor of love sewing on all the beads!
