I opted for 3 colors of Moda's Grunge line--lots of texture from the color. The fabric looks like it was dry brushed in a secondary color. So I traced around the pattern with a pencil and then I marked the darts. I just stuck a pin at the top and bottom of each dart and then carefuly raised the pattern. I marked the spot where each pin entered the fabric with a small dot. I was working on wrong side of the fabric.
Then I traced the dart on a piece of freezer paper and used it to trace the dart directly on the wrong side of the fabric. Here is a pic for you.
The pattern says you can insert a dowel for stability. Well, no dowels at my house but I found pencils. They worked great but they don't exactly fit into the well of a candlestick! I trimmed some florist foam and got my glue gun. With a hot glue gun the girls are perched on their pedestals.
Here they are! Interested in the pattern? It will be in the new online shop in just a few days. Check out whiteflowerquiltshop.com to find the fabric as well.
Talk to you soon,
