Fly curtain or room divider?
It depends. It depends on the size only.I designed a fly curtain, but... if you make the letter-scale bigger ... let's say 300% or 500%... than you got a room divider.
Strange idea said my husband to me. Why don't we use a simple net to cover the door to the patio?
It is so dull- I said to him. Here is my plan:
I cut out big letters from a piece of felt and sew them together vertically, I make some embellishment and go. Isn't it cool?
So what I need: -felt pieces (I have 3 colors, white and red are quite thick and
the orange one is thinner,
no problem, letters need thickness, so I use the red as a base)
- a pair of scissors
- threads for embellishment
- a needle
- few meters of a yarn to sew the letters together
(first I thought orange would be cool
than in reality orange became too much - visually I mean-
so I changed the color into a neutral colorless...)
First I make my pattern for lettering:
A 5x9cm (2x3.5 in) square piece of red felt.
I write each of my letters into this pattern, because I want to use my
scissors freely, so this little pieces of papers are just reminders.
My words are like these:
enlightenment, follow your heart, grace is in the now,
joyful journey, blissful life, moment
Here comes the fun part:
I save the scraps for future in between elements.
When the letters are finished I dig out the big pieces from the scraps and mix them
with white and orange. I cut simple shapes like squares, hearts and circles,
sew 2 or 3 together with a simple cross stitch or a double one.
These gonna be divider elements.
To make each and every pieces ready ... well it takes time
I can tell you now.
