I wanted to add feathers so i did and i love it but now dont know what to do with it lol.
absolutely stunning! i've got a w/burner tool on my wish list & wondered if anyone has cut them out/singed at the same time.

and your link chippchick for the sash is equally gorgeous. lol on bias . . . it still gives a shabby look but eliminates long strings . . .

Bias grain is the thread line that is at a right angle to the lengthwise and crosswise grain of the fabric as it is on the bolt. The bias has stretch in woven fabric and will hang differently than a garment that has been cut on the straight or crosswise grain.

there's a pic here . . .
