This was another challenge from our patchwork group. One of us had brought a book with modern illustrations. We had to choose one theme each and work on it.
This was my first try at woven background. It did not want a plain background and it seemed the perfect solution. Once I had made the background, the ideas for the chameleon itself came easily. It is made of scrap of leather, magazine pages that have been machine-embroidered on felt, then washed to remove the excess of paper, bits of zippers, washers, hanging hooks and pins. It was fun to do.
