Mesh or MESS !!! (stage 1) ...

Continuing with some 'mesh sample ideas' from the earlier patchwork waistcoat, is resulting in an enthusing 'mesh type grid'. The fabric is backed with soft interfacing to keep it firm while machine stitching ( more close-ups are here).

Pinned initially together, free machine embroidery is being used to hold the sections together - thread colours used are based on the fabrics.

The next stage continues using purple thread.
