I then got out some cut off threads from my tapestry weaving and my machine sewing, and some small scraps from my quilting. All recycled elements, very happy about that!
I laid them out on the surface of the fabric, which had Vliesofix ironed onto it.
Then I just sewed over them.
I am not sure how well it would wear but it was fun to do.
It is not a self-portrait, I don't have blue eyes.
