    Do you know the "Patchwork unused needle"?

    It is a technique that I've seen in Blogs Spain and Italy. It is working on a special sheet of styrofoam. The same stalls with a knife following a design. Each resulting piece is covered with fabric, to form a complete design.
    I just learn the technique. I adapted it to the materials that had at home, because in my country is not known. I did a small clock for my sewing room. I present many photos, some of the step and the final result that already looks on my wall.
    You pass a beautiful weekend!
    A strong hug!

    Many yrs. ago there was a craft using styrofoam balls covered with fabric pieces (cut into segements), by pressing the fabric edges into the ball like you did. I remember making them into pumpkins to decorate for all & had used the stem from an apple to poke into the top for the top of the pumpkin. (sorry, no photos).
