I made this fun project for an introductory fabric embellishment class at UW-Madison. The assignment was to take a piece of fabric that is as long as I am tall and completely cover it with one element of embellishment as densely as possible.

My fabric is pink tulle that I scrunched together to add more texture and thickness, and my embellishment is pink pipecleaners that I pierced through the fabric, then curled around my finger.

This is probably one of my favorite projects I have ever made, but it was a beast to complete. It took a lot more pipecleaners and time than I could have ever anticipated.

These curly-q's now reside on the teeny wall in my tiny Madison room between the closet and the door to the kitchen (don't be too jealous of my groovy, mustard yellow refrigerator).
