More Playing with my Embellisher!

11th June 2014

Beautiful day here in Blackpool, early walk on the prom  then off to the park for some tidying and weeding!

After some washing and shopping I decided to have a play and experiment with fabrics using my embellisher. Up to now I have only used felt and Merino Fleece but today gathered some of my space dyed fabrics......


....cotton velvet...


...muslin....


..cotton...


.....I placed these cut pieces randomly on my base cotton fabric and used my embellisher to attach...


...lovely textures especially with the muslin!

Cut more muslin pieces in two shades.....


...and partially attached leaving frayed edges and some manipulation....


....next decided to bind the velvet edges using variegated thread and satin stitch...


....don't know why the colour looks so different!!

I tried a zoom close up...


...but it didn't work(think I need to go on a photography course!!)


I really love fraying and manipulating fabric and now think I might do some hand stitching but have no idea what I will do with this 'new' fabric. 

Next time I think I will try organza and see what happens!!!

Watch this space....
