Working with the Magdalena Stencil


This is my first project with the Alabama Chanin "Magdalena" stencil, which I cut myself out of pennant felt. I used fabric paint and a brush to get it onto my navy jersey. Eventually this will be a dress for Bella, but first I have to finish all this reverse applique and add some beads. Not that that's a chore.

I really do love this stencil design. So curvaceous and floral, and fun to work.

Ooh, and backstitching! I love the color combos--I think it will look great on Bella.

Wow, that really is something. I haven't been brave enough to do the back stitch on an AC design yet.
