Under the sea in an octopus' garden

Have learnt a few things about applique recently including the fact that felt is an excellent fabric to work with and gives a strong colour impact when placed against patterned material. The design is coming together well and when I finally add the beads for the eyes of the sea creatures and the gold sequins to the treasure chest, it should have a sparkle.This is just the cave at the bottom of the sea, and above this will be many other sea creatures swimming in the harbour.

Good news from the art competition - won first prize for the drawing section and several highly commended, but best of all, won the champion prize for 'best of show'. Didn't expect that!

That looks fantastic. I would never have thought to use felt for appliqué. Thanks for he tip :) I might just have to give it a try.
