When I am in JoAnnes, Hancock Fabrics, etc. I always have to browse the aisles looking and touching. I have always loved coloful. soft, drapey fabrics. Today on my way home from town I decided to stop in a Quilting/Sewing Machine store and see what might be there.....I should never have done that BUT....... I got some really neat design fabrics. They had and were selling "knots" of fabric, small fat squares and larger ones.
I bought some awesome Cat designed material by artist Laurel Bush. It was a fat quarter and I am going to use it and some orange swirled material and cover a journal for my granddaughter.
I am looking forward to using material in my mixed media pieces....and even if I have to sew it is nothing that really HAS to fit like a dress so I am thinking I can do it. I will need to find my sewing machine and get it "set up" so it is ready to go in a moments' notice as well as an iron and ironing board. I may need to look for a small "sleve" vs a whole big ironing board.
Tonight I have to finish up my blossom 4 x 4 swap....which is ending up being a steampunky type
design. I hope my partner will like it.
My altered key is laid out on my dining room table and as soon as I find a substrate it will be ready to go when I receive my partners name.
I am wondering how well "knots" would sell on my Etsy site.
Tomorrow I will add some photos of designs and sizes....
My sister loves material also and this is one of her creations....A handmade lampshade.
