#7 – the frayed edge circle

Back to little circles while I plan the next in the series…

This one is about 3.5″ in diameter and was fussy-cut from a piece of furnishing fabric that came as a gift from Dee. I backstitched around the edge and then cut little snips into the remaining edge and ruffled it a bit. The frayed edge is more noticeable in real life than it looks here; the fibres in this fabric are quite fine and make a neat little fringe. The background square is natural linen, cut from a charity shop shirt.

An improvement on last week’s ‘fried egg circle’, I think.

    It looks like an interesting fabric, and I think you’ve done just enough with it.

    This shows how perfect the circle form can be. Love the color and the ‘fringe’.
