Nicola, you did a beautiful job. It surprises me that every pebble is so unique, everyone comes up with new ideas.
Who thinks of a trail of simple buttons?
What items did you trap between the two fabric layers? What stitches did you use?
Don't bother about the folds, they are supposed to be there. You can choose to incorporate them in your embellishment or hide them with embroidery or beads.
Thanks and Im glad about the folds..they wouldnt go anywhere!!!! lol
I used a curtain ring, 3 buttons, a wad of batting,a little stone and a marble, also a pipe cleaner in an s shape..not that you would know. ha ha
The stitches were blanket stitch, needle weaving, french and bullion knots and chain stitch.
Wow, what a pebble! Sorry not to have added a reply before now, I was away from the computer. Buttons!!!! I love buttons and never thought of including them on a pebble. I also love what looks to be vintage pearls, such pretty colors. All the neat stitches. What is the stitch below the buttons and next to the pearls. Looks a bit like a cup stitch, you have worked it in an off white thread.
Hi there..the pearls are fom an old necklace,the stitch you mentioned is done in a pearl grey and the lump was covered firstly in blanket stitch and then a pile of french knots and bullion stitches on the top.
Wow, Nicola, this looks like a pebble you might see around an undersea volcano - so vibrant. I love all of the bits you have used.
yes I went a bit mad adding things to make it interesting lol
Wow! I go away for a few days, and look what happens!
Congratulations Marjolein! Your new pebble is very interesting, and I look forward to seeing more!
Nicola, your pebble is so pretty with all the soft colours and I love the buttons! Clever. A nice variety of stitches, too.
I would love to do one of these and as there's no time limit, I believe I will. I've seen several others and the creativity is amazing. This one is particularly luscious.
Nicola, the folds become a feature of this beautiful pebble.
Hi Ann, creating a pebble is so much fun. There are so many possibilities to explore.
