New Fabric from Recycled Threads

26th March 2019

I keep this bowl beside my machine when I am sewing and put all cut off threads into it....


....placed threads on dissolvable fabric...


....made a 'sandwich'...


....and used free machining to secure in a variety of metallic threads....

....front...


...back...


....rinsed in water...


....front...


...back...


..I prefer the front!

On Saturday I went with a friend to see a textile exhibition, it was brilliant and I wished I had money to spare as I could easily have bought some stunning items!!

I came back and went straight into my craft room and made these two cards which I am rather pleased with, inspired by some work in the exhibition!

A lovely day here and I spent a few hours in the park with my gorgeous granddaughter where we fed the ducks, had ice cream and I spent a long time pushing a swing!! Just love it!!!

Took these photos on my walk down to the bus, such beautiful blossom against the blue sky.



Until the next post, have a good week.....
