Stitch Length Three

DRAWING CHALLENGE No. 60 [pompom and/or skirt]
This drawing came together quite quickly when I decided to use sewing pattern tissue layered with used tea bag paper. I sewed a skirt silhouette in a front and back view and then figured out what pompoms to use. In the end I sewed a 3-sided 'soft' frame and titled the piece "stitch length three" as that was what my sewing machine stitch length setting was for this piece.
Thank you Stefanie for hosting this fun-filled theme! Go have a look everyone, to see the great art here.
Thanks for dropping by, and we'll see you soon, I hope! *smiles* Norma
