More stock for the upcoming craft fair and also the chance just to play with the little projects that I love while the somewhat larger bluework is underway.
I pieced these with some Bondaweb underneath to help the stability given that they range from only an inch to two inches square.
The striped orange is Japanese kimono silk and the black, a scrap of silky man-made fibre with a subtle damasked pattern which was an offcut from my May Ball dress in 1985!
More silk here – the stripey piece, the gold top left, and the pale sand top middle. The mottled brown at the bottom is a favourite scrap of batik cotton which I’ve used for loads of other projects.
Already used up a few oddments of silk thread feather stitching the seams on this one.
Pink and gold silk and hand-dyed brushed cotton flannel for a change in texture. They slipped when I ironed them on so it’ll be interesting to cover up the gaps!
Batik ribbon at the top, the reverse of a piece of batik cotton in the middle and silk (again) at the bottom.
I really struggle to part with little bits, especially from really pretty or special fabrics but I do know I am in good company!
