Today's Every Inchie Monday theme is maudlin. It's meaning...
1. tearfully or weakly emotional, foolishly sentimental
2. foolishly or mawkishly sentimental because of drunkeness
I decided to depict sentimental with embroidered flowers and lace on felt. I added some eyes peeking out of the lace....watching, waiting, probably tearfully.
I have discovered I can work on these little pieces more easily if I start with a larger piece of fabric and mark a square inch in the middle. I then sew and embroider while having more room to manipulate the fabric through the sewing machine or in my hand. When I am finished I trim it down to size. For those of you wondering how I didn't sew through my fingers, now you know!
