After seeing Jill Amanda Kennedy's article in the latest QA, and
getting stumped with another Hoodoo Sky piece, i decided to cut it up
and make cuffs! This is three views of the second cuff made with this method.
Love them! Would like to see some close up photos to see the details on them.
The Hoodoo evolved!! Really unique Arlee, Love those colors. What kind of batting did you use or is it a kind of pellon for the stiffness?
I used a thin synthetic batting, but i'm finding that even needlework of any sort, if it's dense enough, will create some stiffnes for forming. Up to the designer i think for what effect you want :}
Hi Arlee, Wow!, love your cuffs, really glad my article inspired you to get stuck in! I think they are great and I love the colour choice too! Happy stitching :) Jill
They came out wonderfully - this is the kind of look I'd like to achieve as well. Thanks to Jill for the original idea and to Arlee for posting her version! So many projects, so little time!
One more question Arlee, what is the edge, black velvet? Did you construct them onto black velvet?
Yep, the black velvet worked beautifully.
