Searching through a box of bits and pieces, I came across this...
...the front and back of a page torn from a magazine though goodness knows which one.
These are the pictures that started me off on my City & Guilds Machine Knitting and Design course which in turn led me to Creative Embroidery.
It was these two outfits in particular that inspired me. I kept this page for sentimental reasons :)
Does anyone else recall exactly what (or whom) inspired you?
This was the piece of fabric I created at the weekend using Gossamer Fuse.
I decided to start work on it this evening.
I cut it into three pieces using the soldering iron. Laid the middle section on top of the other two pieces and once again used the soldering iron to burn a hole through both pieces which I then connected with a triple French knot** using a viscose tape.
I also sliced a piece out of the side with the soldering iron and rejoined it using gold coloured stainless steel wire.
Will blog again about this piece once I have worked on it further.
** triple French Knot - I probably just made that up, I shouldn't think there is such a thing *LOL* What I have done is wound the tape around the needle three times before inserting it back in the hole.
