it started with a Piece of old Jeans, which i divided into three parts by sashiko stitching (running stitch) in varying directions with various yarns (darning Cotton in dark and light blue).
first i cut circle placeholders from fabric scrap and basted them onto the Jeans fabric:
i planned to fill the circle in the middle with a Quote, the ones on the sides with elephants from my stash (collected from coffee packagings)
this time i strengthened the dyed glasses-cleaning-paper from the back with laminating foil, so the paper won´t frazzle,...
and i pre-sewed the circle with the machine (without thread) , so i could better handstitch through These holes.
same with the elephant circles (Background is Curry tinted coffee filter, a leftover from my egg dyings on easter).
the elephant was sewed on with blanket stitch before, and some stamping done around it
finally the Quote (printed on ledger paper with font daft brush) was glued on and framed with red pencil.
Quote reads: If you think adventure is dangerous, try Routine, it is lethal. (Paolo coelho)
