Textiles Course


I created a stamp from various materials, lino, rubber, polystyrene and foam.  Painted a background and stamped the image into a pattern.


I then re-created this using fabric and dyes.


And tonight I free motion machine sewed onto the fabric enhancing the 'white' areas.  It actually looks much better in real life because the middle layer is wadding, so where the shapes have been sewn, it's puffed up.
