Manuela creates a Fabric Flower -in a Multi Thread Basket
Now this item by Manuela denotes a number of techniques she uses in her fabric art works. The centre is a coiled base (in the same manner as her coil baskets , only flat). Each petal of the flower is machine embroidered and then assembled. Manuela hand beaded a button with glass beads and stitched it to the centre. The basket in which the flower sits is made with many threads stitched together. Manuela has a bin of those scrap, loose, left-over threads that she soften turns into these layered sheets or new textile piece of 12" fabric. The combination stands alone as its own private place.
