Textile Tulips…

Yesterday I attempted this picture but for several reasons it just did not work, I think maybe I was rushing, forgetting completely that I’m only just beginning to learn what my sewing machine (and my imagination) can do.

For the first time, I changed some of the settings on my machine, I even changed the foot to a button hole foot which meant I was able to appliqué the tulip flowers to the background material. As before, I began with a neutral calico which I then spray painted, using doilies to create the detail:
