Anyway. we all loved Ann's leaves so this month she showed us how make them. Evolon is a product I hadn't heard of before. It's a non-woven product that is quite sturdy but has a soft suede-like feel to it. It is manufactured by the company that makes Vilene and Lutrador. It's quite amusing reading up about the product. They market it as a dust-mite proof cover for mattresses and other such uses. Us quilters print and paint it!
Here are the ones I made.
|We stamped leaves using Lumiere paint on the back of leaves.|
|Added fusible web to the back and cut them out with a soldering iron.|
|Then painted them with a transparent paint.|
Last year I made these free-motion embroidery leaves on Solvy. They may end up in the same project.
