In my last post, I left out answering a question - what is pellon. I guess it must be one of those things that doesn't translate well around the world. I never thought I would be showing the backs of my stitcheries to the world but here goes..
Just by chance in my fabric stash cleanup I have been stitching these little ladybugs to use in gifts. A new pattern by Cinderberry Stitches called Little Lady Bug Bag. The first pic is backed with Whisperwelf, the second has a very fine iron on interfacing and the third is backed with pellon. The pellon that I use is fine, soft and sort of springy. It is synthetic, like a very thin, smooth wadding and you can get it in an iron on version or a sew in version. At the edge of the pic you can see a bit of pellon that is larger than the stitchery that I have not trimmed down to size yet. If you do a google search, you might get a better description than mine. Click on the pic for a larger pic to pop up. I use this pellon to make fabric bags too.
And here is a pic of the stitchery fronts, before I make them into little bags
Have a great weekend all. I'll leave you with a pic of Maya who needs to cuddle this big monkey while her biggest brother is away!
