Plumes are stitched on the backs of
I decided to take photos as I drew out this design:
I chalk out the feather spine onto fabric...
1...... At the base of the spine, I begin to
add plumes on the bottom right side
2...... Here comes the piggy back part
Add left facing plumes onto the back
of the previous plume
3....... Then add another section of plumes
Continue piggy backing and adding plumes
until the right side of the spine is filled in.
Then stitch back down the spine to the bottom:
Then stitch plumes on the left side of the spine.
