Back to work

A couple of textile pics in between the holiday snaps!

We went to a wedding on Saturday and I didn’t have an evening bag so I embellished an old quilted bag I had by free stitching the swirls on the flap, zigzagging over the cord and adding the flower which was made by wrapping metallic yarns around a metal ring then free machining. I used 2 different sized rings, the smaller one was a bangle, so the flower is made in 2 layers.

When I need to get back to making things but am not ready to start on a specific project I often do little pieces like those above. They make use of leftover bits of fabric, yarns etc. I store them in a box with other experimental pieces and samples until I use them for something.

  1. The bag certainly worked. The little pieces do come in handy. I always save everything and have found they work as a start for exchange pieces.
