In the challenge package are also these wonderful fabrics. The second fabric on the bottom left has little sparkling stones.
The green in the sheer fabric matches the green in the two fabrics beside it.
Look how thin! There are shiny swirls that ask for attention.
When I use a bluish green as backing (right), the sheer fabrics blends into the one with the sparkles (left).
A closer picture of the sparkling fabric. The brown colors match the brown fabrics.
Mistyfuse is a miraculous material. It is very thin and I will use it to fuse the sheer swirling fabric on the background.
The sparkling fabric is hand appliqued whereby the light brown neighbors the light brown fabric and the dark brown the dark brown fabric.
These are the fabrics for the pool.
First the background. As the pool is less deep nearby the sand, the water is lighter there.
I ironed the Mistyfuse on the back of the sheer fabric and next on the background fabrics. I used a special sheet and baking paper to protect my iron and fabrics.
Here is the completed pool. Look at those swirls ;-D
The last two fabrics are appliqued.
This approaches the picture I have in mind.
