Fabric Book covers once again. This time not only did I make covers for composition books, but for artist sketch books and 3x5 card booklets. I really enjoyed the one just above. I plan to create more using my many scraps.
The above are some of my dyed/printed silk scarves. How I love to print using real leaves. There's a meditative process happening when I print.
And lastly, I've made some fabric paper using pieces of paper towel that protected my hands when printing leaves. I layered a thin muslin with torn pieces paper towels and painted with thinned white glue. I have no plans at the present for this but I know I'll create something sometime.
I also made this year's Christmas ornaments but forgot to take a picture. Next time.
My darling sister, Marlene, wearing one of her scarves
We spent one of our days together with two of Marlene's friends making ribbon/thread scarves. Process - lay out various ribbon/threads/yarns/fabric pieces onto a water soluble plastic-like material, place another water soluble piece on top and pin. Take it to the sewing machine and stitch. I thoroughly enjoyed going through Marlene's stash picking out what I wanted. The stitching was a bit boring. Once the stitching was completed, dip it in water and voila! A beautiful airy scarf. I made two - though very like in colors. Marlene had 3 when the week was up. I had a fun time with her friends!
