As I wanted it to be translucent, like stained glass windows, I used polyester organza. I layered the pieces and pinned them to a piece of dissolvable fabric on which I had drawn the design.
I then free motion sewed the outline and cut away the layers. That wasn't quite as easy as it sounded, the layers were hard to see at times and I did nick a couple of layers that I had not meant to cut through. I also decided to do some lines on one part but forgot to do the cutting away before I sewed, so there is a colour in there that doesn't see the light of day. Oh well, that is the advantage of doing a small test piece.
I didn't do it in a hoop and I found that it shrank by about a centimetre.
