Shell Crinoline Lady & embroidered parasol.

The Crinoline Lady is made up of approx. 10 different types of shells, her pet dog, sleeping at her feet 1 whole shell + shaped pieces to make his ears & tail. I have machine embroidered the parasol canopy and stuck it to the frame of a cocktail umbrella, then added a pretty red ribbon bow to the topside of the parasol. The parasol canopy design comes from Secrets of Embroidery.

Thank you Shirlene. Shellwork is something which I did a lot of before the embroidery machine took over.
