Crazy Quilt Dress Form

What a fun project. To create the velvet bodice, I used silk velvet and a rose rubber stamp to stamp the image into the velvet using Fiber-Etch. A technique literally executed by intuition. The Fiber Etch gel removes the warp or the weft, leaving the layer of fibers beneath the velvet nap. I outlined the rose image with teeny metal tri-cut french beads. Beneath the bodice are two floral groupings. I created this a few years ago and I'm still  happy with the ribbon embroidery on the piece.
