Playing with Fabrics and Automatic Stitches....

1st April 2015

Happy April to you all....

I saw an idea on a blog I follow, more details tomorrow, and decided to have a play.....

...I backed two pieces of felt with bondaweb....


....selected pieces of fabric and ironed on the felt....



.....stitched using automatic patterns on my machine....


....using a variety of threads including metallic....


....cut out circles and made cords....



.....to see the result of this work come back tomorrow!

::::::

I have a box of cut threads....


....and....


.....selected some threads and sandwiched between two pieces of soluble fabric....


...stitched using metallic threads, blue, green, silver using a wavy automatic pattern...


.....rinsed under luke warm running water...


....other side...


...I have plans for this when dry!!

I have really enjoyed playing with automatic stitches, making cords and my own fabric using used threads and soluble fabric....

....watch this space.....
