Rolodex Project - Day 19

Day 19 of my Rolodex Project. You can read about this project here.

Today's 3" x 5" artwork was made with a scrap of velvet that I discharged with bleach. It's hand stitched with Valdani Pearl Cotton #204 Bright Orange Coral. I tried a few different color threads but the Bright Orange Coral matched perfectly and didn't distract from the main part of the piece, which is the discharged design. Also, I didn't want to over stitch the piece. Just enhance it. I'm really happy with the way it turned out.


Thanks for stopping by! 


  1. Love the organic shape the discharge technique created here.

    1. Thanks, MB! The fabric is so old that I don't remember when I discharged it. I have a few more small pieces of discharged fabric still in my stash.
