Just for fun...
We have a little guild challenge amongst our members. We are each making a Martini block or two or three. I have made three so far, but only have one of them embellished.
I started off thinking that these blocks would be a breeze, but the angles were really tricky, especially the base of the glass.
The base and stem don't quite line up.
I used the internet for a bit of inspiration and came up with this. I used Heat n Bond to adhere a light yellow to a darker yellow and added some texture with my sewing machine. These guild challenges are really good for building our sewing skills and encouraging our imaginations! Now I just need a little inspiration for my other two blocks.
