#14 of 52 projects

Catching up with the 52 projects. This should be week #18.

Yes, the edge stitching on the right side is even, the scan is wonky! The scanner bed needs some cleaning, well, actually, the protective sheet of plastic that is placed on the scanner bed needs to be replaced.

Components: base fabric is kunin felt. Really ugly tiny remnant of upholstery fabric purchased at WalMart for .38 before they decided to stop selling fabric. (DRAT!!) that I used to cut a heart shape out of. The fabric has yellow, red, and beige stripes and when needle punched from the back the heart became one with the felt, love that effect! The antique key is wrapped in a scrap of blue chiffon that was needle punched onto black felt. When heat blasted the scrap adhered itself around the key.

Learned: For needle punching, on the backside, it doesn't matter what a piece of fabric looks like as long as the colors are pleasing.

I really like this. How did you do the edging, is it machine stitched? The key is so cool, and wrapping it with blue chiffon was a great idea. Keep on with the heart series, it's progressing well.
