Mulberry Paper, Angelina fibres and stitch

First I fused some gold angelina fibres together by ironing between two sheets of baking paper. The fibres matted together to make a thin layer

Then I machine stitched the angelina fibres with a gold metallic thread to a piece of mulberry paper. Mulberry paper is tough enough to take machine stitching because it is very fibrous
