fistly, I can't explain why I choose mallows. secondly, I don't know if is it like mallows - that what I made :) so, this is my next birthday card for one of needlewoman from our Fibre Fever group.
эволюция идеи. сначала это были просто абстрактные цветочки. но потом мне страстно захотелось мальву. пришлось полезть в википедию, посмотреть, как выглядят цветы мальвы. срисовала себе в блокнот.
my idea's evolution. first it was some abstract flowers, but then I desided to make mallows. I red encyclopedia and redraw from there the shapes of mallow flowers to my notebook.
I use felt for that flowers. then I find this fabric with almost the same flowers!
and here is whole process from the very beginning :) creating block (sewing by hands)
now my card has right size 10x15 cm. you can say that it's finished! but no! :)
I has 3 cuttered felt flowers, but the 3rd occuires out of game, then I took my lovely hook and crocheted 3 new flowers from the same threads as I use for embroidery.
