Crazy Count

The Count, the wonderful dimensional bat from Tapestry Fair has finished wings! Hot dog!

Believe it or not I've been excited about the borders on the wings since the very beginning.  I had a vision of them looking crazy quilted and using ribbons and trims to make that a reality.



The borders use shibori ribbon!  Shibori ribbon is 4" wide bias cut silk that is pleated to 1" and dyed. 

YUMMY!  The cool thing about the ribbon is that you can bend and sculpt the ribbon to allow it to flow and curve.  Add to the shibori ribbon hand dyed ric rac, a handful of vintage swarovski buttons and kapow!  We have lift off!






The Count is winging his way to the finisher. 

Kits are packed and waiting for Sterling our favorite UPS master mover to pick them up and get them on their way to you.

I hope you love the finishing touches as much as I do.

This looks fantastic - and much more fun than stitching all that black!
