Fabric Slashing


I started off with a piece of blue fabric which I completely covered with layers of scraps, fibres, ribbons and the like, everything really.  I covered them with a piece of cream coloured fabric and using straight stitch created panels of lines and boxes.


Using a pair of small sharp scissors I slashed the fabric, by cutting in-between the lined panels and cutting crosses, diagnals and lines in the square panels.  This revealed some of the underneath layers.

Inspiration for this piece came via a link that Chris sent me by textile artist Fay Maxwell

BTW I know we don't NEED to make anything from this type of playing but will you be using it for anything in particular? I know what it's like sometimes when you make something even like a tag just 'cos you want to and people say 'what's it for?' or 'what do you do with them?'!!! LOL

Well, Sam, I've got to say that this looks even better in the flesh. I love how all the underneath layers peek out.
