An other challenge ... feathers.  I used a real peacock feather, layering fabric, misty fuse, feather, and black silk organza.  The outline of the feather is machine quilted with embroidery thread.  The organza was cut out of the center of the feather's eye, leaving a part of the real feather exposed. The hand work around the feather uses 100% Rayon Brazilian Embroidery Threads.  While these threads are more difficult to sew, they offer nice texture and a beautiful sheen.
