Trial – Stargazer Lily

I decided to create a very rough stargazer lily and try and form it, to see if the flower would hold its shape etc.

I drew the basic shape on the dissolvable fabric and using a fairly loose pattern ‘coloured in’ the petals. I also embroidered text around the edge of a couple of the leaves to see how it would look. After washing out the fabric I arranged the flower in a wine glass to hopefully achieve the correct shape.

The text was challenging on a small scale, but I liked the effect, so will need to perfect this technique.

On the whole I think it worked very well, so the plan is the make another one.  However, this time I will make two sets of three petals, and layer them when the dissolvable fabric has been washed away, as I think it will look better.
