January 10

Well, yesterday was wonderful. I started a new piece.
I'm using the fabrics that I mono printed over the summer. I start by draping sheer fabrics on top and then mark the shapes I want. It's neat to work this way because the sheers interact with the background fabric and make a really cool water color painting effect. I sew some sheer shapes permanently to the fabric and then cut away other parts with my tiny scissors. I will continue layering like this creating depth. When I am finally satisfied with the effect I use a close satin stitch to cover the raw seams and couch on some funky yarns too. Then, I will cut the fabric up and sew it all back together again! Ye ha!
