The Tulle Experiment

I’ve spent a lot of time already on this tulle project, so I’d really like it to work…

AND IT IS!

I took stacks (12 different colors of light and dark) of tulle and wrapped them around these and then cut the rounded edge and the straight bottom:

Thank you post office!

Look at all that tulle!

So much static!

And to prep the base fabric.  I took my lovely rayon/linen blend, cut the fold of the fabric (it’s 58″, so now it’s 29″), and sewed the two lengths together with a felled french seam:

Joint in the fabric.

Time to lay out the tulle to figure out the perfect color order (forgive the terrible picture – it’s winter and dark, so lighting sucks).

Found the right order!

Then started to sew the scalloped tulle onto the base.  Here’s the project so far:

Love. Love. Love. Love. Love.

Love. Love. Love. Love. Love.

That’s what I’ve done so far.  5 layers sewn on, one pinned, 6 to go.  I’m getting there!
