Pin It


Beautiful beetle...

I'm taking part in my usual stitchinfingers monthly FPC swap. June's theme ended up being Egypt. I love working with angelina and I couldn't think of anything more deserving or appropriate than a jewelled scarab beetle, so here she is...

I laid a base of fibres for the wings and embroidered feathers with silks. The body was a piece of thicker angelina tacked over a wad of quilting filling. I then added beads as a border, to define the wings and create legs. This is a traditional Egyptian design, I've just used it in a contemporary fashion with new materials. I hope the recipient likes it as much as I enjoyed making it!
