18th July 2015: Pile of leaves! Look at all dem leaves! That's 19 there, I have 5 more to do but I've run out of gold thread! 200 metres wasn't enough???!!!!
Guess I'm off to the market then.
17th July 2015: On the home stretch! This is one of the top layer of leaves! Annoyingly, these have more veins. But soon I shall be done then I can trim them all!
16th July 2015: Getting judged I took a break and the cat judged me for not working. GODDAMMIT ELLA!
15th July 2015: It begins. The leaves. I have been dreading this. My sewing machine HATES twin needle sewing and no matter what the thread tension, it manages to gather the taffeta under the ribbon.
Also, yes, that is organza ribbon, which gives the effect of applique but takes half the time!
7th July 2015: Aw yiss Just needs priming and painting now! I never want to cut out a worbla leaf or petal again.
7th July 2015: Flower power Done the flower, featuring many tiny hand rolled balls of worbla. My poor fingers. (thank f*ck for scraps)
7th July 2015: Almost Done! Just needs the tiny leaves and the flower!
7th July 2015: Belt needs leaves! Time for some of many leaves on this outfit!
6th July 2015: Started work on the belt I basically drew out a section of the belt based on what I imagined it'd look like and made it so it would repeat along the length of the belt. It's thinner than on the artwork as I have a short torso. Then I rolled hollow sausages of worbla and shaped them to the drawing. Leaves are gonna be added later.
6th July 2015: Belt Progress Left it at this for today.
6th July 2015: Belt Progress Adding the dangling vines and starting on the leaves.
