Dragonfly


Two layers of organza fused together with misty fuse.


The four wings. They are very delicate.

The body of the dragonfly.


The finished dragonfly. Unfortunately the top left wing was damaged. There is a little hole at the top.
I am going to make a new one. I know, no one will notice, but I will ;)

  1. This dragonfly is very pretty! The wings are so delicate. Did you stitch along the edges after fusing? It looks as though the edges are finished. Thanks so much for sharing this technique.

  7. Thank you for your nice comments. I enjoyed stitching the dragonfly.

    Connie, I did stitch along the edges.
    First I bent the wire in the right shape, then I stitched the wire on the organza with overcast stitches. I used Madeira metallic, a very fine thread. After stitching I cut out the wings, the most difficult part.
