I started out with the piece I had woven before and set aside because nothing I did with it turned out right. I added a piece of lovely blue violet velvet I had dyed and another piece of a cotton blend I dyed also.
I cut these into strips and pieced them together
Then I started embroidering them, much after the style of Chris Grey, a wonderful artist friend of mine. I have long admired this method she uses and felt it worked well with this piece.
He seems much happier this way. I am having much fun with him!
