Here is the finished off-the-shoulder wrap with the glittering "rose" button that was machine needle felted and then wet felted. This nuno felted wrap which was shown in a previous post took about 1600 rolls (no kidding!) and then I added some free motion stitching and used my trusty Embellisher to add some silk ribbon before stitching it down too. I'm really please with it although when I initially dyed the silk chiffon it turned out a soft green gray rather than the silver gray I initially had hoped for. To be a precise dyer you should measure and take notes but since I never want or need to repeat a colorway, I'd rather spend my time playing!
