Two pieces for Six

Another piece,this time using thermofax printed calico on bottom,this had layer of synthetic lining fabric stitched with ellipses cut and frayed.Top layer was stitched from back with thicker hand dyed cotton in bobbin,think it must be silk as heat did nothing,so cut back again.

This one has a layer of hand dyed felt stitched with zigzag and straight stitches.I then laid some dyed lace in lines across it before a double layer of net .I then sewed blocks of zigzag before blasting with a heat gun.

I don't know whether to do any more samples or if six are enough for this chapter.I guess I'll find out when I contact Sian.

I love the effect of the lace and stitches on the felt.
