Melinda Phillips – Tree and Cottage

Melinda Phillips Tree

Melinda Phillips Tree Challenge


I first started wanting to embroider on a zip and incorporate this to my hand made handbag.The owls I filled with chain stitch to allow the appearance of feathers. I delicately wove branches, leaves and berries of red beads to add bling on the stone linen. The back of the handbag I used a lighter approach, with vines echoing the branches, as if through a forest. This project is 25 x 15 cm, also has phone pocket inside, and owl button to the zip pull.

You may remember the couch Melinda sent in HERE for our HOUSE challenge. She has completed the house and sent in photos of this spectacular work of art.
