JFF - Week 26 - Fabric and or Fibre


Fabric and or fibre is this weeks JFF theme.  I decided to use both.  The background is a piece of muslin which has been stamped with acrylic paint.  I heat transferred an image onto another piece of muslin which I frayed around all four edges.  I used a large zig-zag stitch to attach the thick piece of wool down the right hand side.  I unravelled a dyed silk carrier rod and using free motion sewing, attached it and added a piece of ribbon across the middle.  I left the threads so I could attach the button.  I stamped the word dream and added gems.  Down the left hand side I added a piece of deep green silk organza, once it was attached I blasted it with the heat gun.  Finally I added a piece of lime green ribbon to hang.
