Have been wanting to do another piece and found a pattern for a watermellon in an old Create and Decorate magazine....and decided this was it!!
Had pattern and homespun on my cutting table for weeks ....so today I found a few hours to go to town...here is what I have done so far...
My black "seeds" and just starting the watermellon in a red and creamy checked homespun.
Filling in ....
Red checked finished and added the deep green rind....
Have background to finish and border and the words "watermellon" in black ....Background is a creamy tan fabric with green stirpes --like a ticking fabric. Then border in either the red or deep green. or both..will play with that.
After I am done, I am going to spray with a dark coffee mixture...to "prim" up just a bit!!!
May be a larger, long pillow or a mat?? will see..
Have a wonderful evening my friends,
