  6. I'm so curious, is the inner frame made of fabric or cloth-covered wood or cardboard? It's so gorgeous!

    1. Everything was made from some sort of fibre. I used heavy interfacing for construction. Fabric was fused to both sides. The hardest part was the design. The rest was experimentation until I got what I wanted.
