I'm feeling slightly poorly today so I've taken to the sofa
with a blanket and thought I bring you up to date
with my course work.
Free Machine embroidery
Sewing onto paper seemed really strange but that is what we did here.
Our work from the previous week was photocopied
and we did some free machine machine embroidery onto the copy.
The back was interesting.
I then found this really strange piece of fabric,none of us could work what it was,
but the threads pulled really easily and when pulled it made some interesting shapes.
I then used a couple of the techniques we had been using and added some colour
It now covers my old Singer. I love the mixture of bright pink and
The cut work was fun,
this piece was only 3 layers but I want to try it with more.
I think this might look quite nice as the front of a small bag.
Then the fun started.
I absolutely love using dissolvable fabric
This thread is such fun and gives a fantastic effect.
My last piece I am so proud of I love it.
I cut a motif out of this fabric
Then just got totally carried away
creating this edge in autumn colours
and lastly adding some gold to lift it a little bit more.
This is my last week and I will really miss it
but can't wait to see what we do.
