With the help of this book, I came up with authentic
looking shapes evocative of the era. Mid-Century
Modern Patterns is a coloring book for grownups by
artist and designer Jenn Ski. Look for her HERE and HERE
Before applying the appliqués I made decorative line stitching to go behind some of the shapes. I chalked out the lines to follow.
I have added echo stitching around
some shapes, too.
That tear drop shape is cut from a little sample of faux suede. I also used it for some other shapes.
So are you into this old but new decorating or are you "been there, done that".
