Oh, Lord - Would you buy me a Mercedes Benz?

 So. I took the red and black vessel from my previous post and turned it inside out. It was okay before, but just okay. Now, it is much more interesting.

I got the idea of doing that from the aqua vessel. I fucked around with it way too long, and then I used cotton cord to run 5 or 6 rounds of gathering around the upper half and then left it to dry.

The next morning, it wasn't dry. Maybe I should've waited, but I didn't, and I took out the stitching and it was a mess. Again, I fucked around with it, and turned it inside out.

I did decide to do the gathering bit again on another piece, but this time, I plan to leave the cord in place. The felt fabric effectively hides it.

And in the meantime, I make little pins, which makes me very happy.

Oh, and now you're going to post a lot? I will pay attention.
I love that blue poppy-seed case. You seem to have found your medium.
