September Calendar Girls

This is the inspiration for this months postcard for the Calendar Girls.

I painted a white paper napkin with silk paints and attached it to a piece of cotton fabric with Bondaweb.

I bought some white Kunin felt a while ago and I've been wanting to have use it so I painted Transfer paint in 'Wine Red' on to a piece of photocopy paper. It doesn't look very nice on the paper but it's nice shade of pink once ironed onto a piece of the felt.

I used a narrow zig zag stitch to sew it to the background and added some FME. At last I've found a use for the soldering iron I bought last year to cut around the outside of the flower to get rid of the excess felt and added french knots at the centre for the stamens.
