Pars tres, Trapunt-faux

This sample (Trial 1, for those of you keeping track) has 2 layers of cotton batting. I have played with this combo before, but never to this extent).
Pros: I have a lot of cotton batting scraps so this was a great way to use them up. The 2 layers also gives the stiffness I wanted for these minis. The free-motion stitch shows up nicely, but the cotton just does not give any "pouf". Not a bad effect, just different.

Again this sample has the YLI Soft Touch (60/2) in top and bobbin. No tension issues, stitched fine. Just not very "trapunto-ish". These minis have been so much fun. I am involved in several mini swaps and really enjoy the process. I am also looking forward to the feedback from my partners.
