First, choose a color palette for your creation to match the decor where it will be displayed. Make sure you have similar and complementary colors in light, medium, and dark values.
- 2 yards of any old fabric that can be used for the backing (this will also be used as a portable work surface
- 1 yard of paper-backed, heavy-duty fusible web, 17" wide (Ellie recommends heavy-duty Wonder-Under)
- Scraps and/or fat eighths (9" x 21") of fabrics in your chosen colors--at least 6 different ones
- 12" lengths of ribbons, lace, rickrack, and/or braided trims in colors to match and contrast. (Ellie's note: satin ribbons are great for shine, while metallics, such as gold and silver, are great for zing.
