Decorating Fabric with Stitch

29th May 2014

 Pilates this morning and a couple of hours this afternoon listening to Radio 4 and stitching. Great!

I chose a piece of my dyed fabric, couched some of my dyed yarn and played with my programmed stitches on the machine.....


.....next I hand stitched using fly, french knots, blanket, seed and chain stitch....


.....very enjoyable and think I might use the fabric for a removable book cover.

Next I prepared a sponge roller ready for acrylic paint....


....by twisting a thick elastic band around the sponge.....

....watch this space to see the effect!
