I finally started a little bit on the selvage angel. I drew out a better "pattern" (I use that term so loosely). This gives me a better idea of the rough shapes I need to make with the selvages.
I also washed, ironed and sorted the beige selvages that I am using for the angel's robe and hair.
I started sewing all the selvages together for the robe. I still need to add more to the top, but this is probably 2/3 of the height I need. I used a glue stick to help me out this time. It allowed me to lay out a whole bunch of selvages before I even went to the sewing machine.
This is the thread I bought to use. I am using the copper metallic thread for sewing the beige selvages together now. You can see the stitching in the photo below. I like the subtle sparkle it adds. It is the first time I have sewn selvages with a thread that shows, but I wanted to try something different. I really feel the pressure to sew as straight as I can. :-)
Thanks for stopping by!
I'm linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced and WIP Wednesday at The Needle and Thread Network.
