My place to be creative

Work in Progress

Leave a comment


Not having my sewing machine for a while has given me the impetus to try something else.  I have in this piece employed an embellisher to ‘felt’ a piece of hand dyed fabric with various textiles including scrim, throwsters waste, wool fibres and velvet.  Once that was completed I have stitched to the centre a digital art image which has been quilted and beaded and is backed by a square of velvet.  The piece is yet to get its final embellishments of beads including a few Swarovski crystals for that extra twinkle!  Once that is completed I will be adding batting and a backing fabric, giving the whole piece a light quilt then I will mount the entire thing on to a frame and hanging it a prominent place.  Hope you like it – I do.
