A new experiment
I'm excited about this new experiment. Venturing into new territory with fabric. My sketches are screen printed onto the fabric. After trimming away certain spots, I tried sewing it on my machine to do raw edge applique. The machine would have NO part of it. It decided it would rather EAT the fabric. The ink is plastic based, and is somewhat course. So, it would not get under the feed dogs without getting stuck. So, I whippped out the needle and thead, and hand stitched. I also used Wonder Under to secure. Then, added beads and metallic gold thread as accents.
