Well its OK just making a bowl, but it does need a bit of embellishment as well. I’d saved the most decorative bit for the inside. Bit dumb really, as its going to be covered with ‘Interesting Things’ (in the absence of a rabbit skin bag – if you don’t know what I mean, you need to read ‘Hitchhiker’s Guide…). Next time, I’ll make sure the decorative felt is on the outside.
Anyhoo, I’ve begun to embellish. Out came my lovely beads. I wondered first of all whether I should try to hide where the felt pieces overlaid each other, or make a feature. I decided to feature them, so I stitched them together first, to make sure the PVA I’d stuck everything together with didn’t get tired and come apart. Then I decorated the stitches with beads, and then I decided to go around the lip of the bowl with beads too, to give it a sort of crusty effect.
This is where I’ve got so far. It still looks a little plain to me, so I’m not sure at this moment whether I will leave it as it is, or whether it needs some more decoration. I’ve parked it for now, to give the ole back burner a chance to chew it over. Praps I should put my Interesting Things in it; that might help me decide. I shall let you know in my next instalment.
