This is crushed velvet.
I don't like to work with it.
I prefer normal velvet.
Also, crushed velvet is hard to photograph - you have to get the light just right to see the true colour which, in this case, is red.
But I have this length of crushed velvet and I'm not going to let it get the better of me.
I know, it's a little weird. And so is this design, a work in progress, but I like it. I think.
