How to create stand-alone miniature works of textile art with cord, thread and a few pins.
Thanks everyone! I will look forward to hopefully seeing some of your examples. :-) @Valerie Often the little pompoms are quite simple. Most of the ones I have had my hands on are small circles of fabric, often velvet, that you would stitch around the edge, pull up the stitches till you have a pocket, stuff with wadding, attach to cord, and poof! pompom. You can also bead the little pompom. It seems they are usually beaded either in vertical lines or spiraled around the ball. I also have several period versions of instructions for crocheted balls made from lace thread. It takes A LOT of these little balls. These could be the seamstresses version of The Thousand Cranes! :-D
Kismet. I can't believe I found an article on something as obscure as recreating Victorian passementerie, and penned by none other than the fabulous Kelly Cochran Davis.
I am armed to the teeth with soutache. I am so trying this at home. Probably this weekend.
Thanks for the fabulous demo!!!!
