Here is Shadow and Timber in progress...
The confetti was laid out to create the grass and sky.
A close up of all the tiny scraps.
The meshing is overlaid and then pinned down.
Start to sew and secure the pieces in place as you go.
A look as some of the colors that are going in.
Most of the pieces are secured and textured at this point.
I start pulling fabrics for the details of the dogs, red frisbee, trees in the background, and picnic blanket. I also cut out the pups Shadow and Timber from a print out to get a template for their bodies.
Shadow was cut out of black fabric and Timber out of white. I still have the paper templates laid on top and everything is pinned in place to get a feel for the placements.
And a close up view.
I'm really excited with how this piece is turning out! I still need to sew all the pieces in place, finish planning the trees and sky, decide if I like how the picnic blanket is rumpled, make a picnic basket and then it's off to finishing details like the dogs eyes and nose, the dogs collars, and maybe some flowers.
Hope your sew-in was a huge success!!
Can't wait to peak around and see what everyone else did. You can see the other participants here!
