I bought this from eBay a few weeks ago, but thanks to the reports, followed by updating the children’s target files, inputting the data online, filling in their pupil progress reports and number crunching percentages to show how many are on target, not on target, on target compared to this or that target group…oh yes, and teaching, of course, that thing I actually trained to do…
Sorry, rant over. Where was I? Oh yes. I bought this from eBay a few weeks ago:
But, due to reasons listed above, I’ve only just got round to playing with it. Melting fabric onto other fabric to create little experimental samples; just up my street.
Two layers on this one, over a sun print of a washer.
Bored with patterns now. What about using the tool to cut some shapes out?
This ended up as sort of a spider. I love the way the tool sliced through this synthetic satin.
Back to patterns.
Then I started to stitch into them. Just playing, echoing the spots on this abstract pattern with french knots.
The scrap of black silk matka behind shows through as a strong black line around the blocks of colour.
Layered waves with some couching.
I saw a lovely and unusual book of quilting samples on Pinterest and I really want to have a go at doing something similar with these little trial pieces.
