IN 2010 I COMPLETED A TEXTILE COURSE AT MARDEN COLLEGE.
lots of work but heaps of fun.. a great bunch of girls.. eighteen of us ..
one of the projects I thought I would share with you is a fabric book I created .
we had to do a project incorporating 6 applique techniques ..
this is what I came up with ..
THE COVER ..
free machine embroidery, stamping, outline stitch and fused technique.
Gathering fabrics, stamps, ideas, scissors etc. in preparation.
this technique is called NAIVE OR FOLK ART .. we had to create a design using the American folk art of stitching, hand turned and satin stitch, and Broderic Persc .. I chose to create another scrapbooking type design with fabric ..
this is a technique using sheers .... I used a dress-form and created a scrapbooking LO with fabric .. I also used satin stitch, hand stitching and raw edge work ..
this flower design is the reverse applique technique ..one of my FAVES.
I layered four different fabrics together .. one on top of the other ... then I stitched a design on to the back of the fabric ... then turned the fabric over and proceeded to cut into the fabric revealing the different fabrics underneath, creating a design .. COOL HEY ???
a close up ..
thanks everybody for droppin' by
hope you ENJOYED my little textile sample book
