The first of three pieces cut from this piece of Matkalla Maalle designer by Teresa Moorhouse for Marimekko (this blue version is now discontinued).
It depicts "the feeling of freedom which one gets on a car trip as views change rapidly" but after I cut the "gems" into rounds, they looked more like swimming pools to me.
This is a piece made for those who love wearing The Empress Dowager's New Jewels with the ruched side showing!
~ All pieces are 100% handstitched with love.
~ Each piece is a one-off -> no two pieces of The Empress Dowager's New Jewels are the same
~ The smallest "gem" measures 1.5cm in diameter, the next one up is 2.5cm, followed by 4.5cm and 6cm for the largest
~ From the first "gem" on the left to the last one on the right: 41.5cm
~ Length of ribbon-tie: 40cm on each side (to allow for the wearing of your "jewels" at various lengths
~ Given away to Auntie Fal for Christmas!
