I have recently been trying my hand at fabric dyeing. So, as ever I have used the first pieces of fabric that I dyed to make this panel. It is based on a marble wall panel that I saw on the wall of one of Northern India’s many palaces.
The main body of the plant has been created using freezer paper – wonderful for getting an accurate image. The flowers have been created freehand and embellished with Indian beads and fusible bias binding has been used to create the borders.
