The artist had made vases, too. That were fabulous. So, I finally decided
to try it after seeing them about 4 years ago. I got nice fabric for a very
good price at Joann's, as well as the stiff interfacing. They turned out
excellent from the beginning. That satin stitch sure uses a lot of thread,
so if you're so inclined to make these - make sure you have 3 or 4 spools
of the color(s) of your choice. Variegated thread would look good, too.
I've made couple others, but have given them away as gifts long
before I received my digital camera from my son for Mothers' Day.
