Page for Goddess Meandering Book

This is a page for a Goddess themed meandering book for a round robin. The fabric is an embroidered batik. I printed the image on a piece of ink jet fabric and used a satin stitch on my machine after ironing it on. The stitching around the edge of the page is just a small zig zag with a little more decorative machine stitching. I wanted to the little paper flowers but could not decide how to attach them. Just gluing was too plain and flat and I didn't like the way the brad looked on the fabric. I ended up attaching them with a french knot through the center of the flower. It is hard to tell in the scan, but that little french knot really adds some dimension to the flower. There are several more on the back of the page which I did not scan.

A lovely goddess! Like your combo of machine and hand work.

That is beautiful! I love the image and the embellishments. As for glue, I had never used Aleene's Clear Gel Tacky Glue before but did for my 12x12x12 challenge and really liked it. It dries completely clear and was easy to work with.

Your fabric work is coming along SO beautifully! You are going to be my 'fabric' role model! I love everything about this piece. Oh, and thanks for taking the time to comment on my blog, it's miniscule - but I'll get there! I'm having fun with it too.

How very pretty ! The background is very striking, perfect for the piece. The French knot works well. A bead would have been another thought.
