Commissions by Danielle
May 19, 2015: My first large circular item, and first circular item to include the figure-8 technique! It's much more sensible on a model than it seemed on its own. Also included is a hat for her friend--I know it looks Photoshopped, but I swear I didn't even adjust the colors!
The poncho was commissioned in early 2012, completed in April. Its basic shape was recommended by a poncho she already possessed, but the flowers were my own design--she wanted tulips, and those are "scattered" about the middle of the piece, but I had made some that were too wide...so I called them "lotus" and put them at the corners of the color junctions.
The scarf was commissioned in Jan/Feb 2011. I did not use a pattern; I simply improvised a design as I went, checking with the commissioner of course to make sure she liked it.
