This week's puzzle is a bit of a departure. It is actually the cover of a scissor and needle case created by TQS Guest and Teacher, Lauren Vlcek.
You can watch Lauren in Episode 1206: The Magical World of Mixed Media debuting on Monday, March 11, 2013.
You learn about embellishment in Lauren's classroom, Fabric Fancification.
This contemporary scissor and needle case features an original print on canvas of a painting I did of Frida Kahlo. The case measures 6 inches by 6 inches when closed. It opens to 6 inches by 15 1/2 inches and utilizes 2 magnetic snap closures. The needle pages are made of wool felt. The fabrics on the interior and exterior of the case are modern 100% quilting weight cotton supported by 2 kinds of interfacing for a sturdy hand. The appliqué on the cover is made from handwoven Burmese silk.
