Sketchy

Sun May 1, 2011 at 11:38 pm in Embroidery, Quilting, WIP

I’ve been working on a sketch for a week or so.
It’s the basic line drawing that will guide my next textile piece.
Well, the one after the one I’m currently working on, anyway.

This is really the background.
I can’t sketch out the actual interesting part of this one.
Because it’s three-dimensional. And elaborate.
Eventually you’ll see what I mean.
For now, though, this is what it exists as.
At least it’s to scale (30″ x 15″).

Dancing-Princesses-Layout

Not that you’ll see the final product soon, exactly.
The background work alone will take some serious time!
I was trying to figure out if any of it can be machine-sewn.
So far, I’m not coming up with much.

This scene is one from the 12 Dancing Princesses fairy tale of the Brothers Grimm.
I’ve been thinking about doing something based on this fairy tale for quite some time.
I just recently decided what aspect of it I’m interested in pursuing most.

Here goes!
