Today was "catch up" day. I had some little commitments I had to work on before I start work on my next big project which is an art quilt for my sister in law, Leslie.
Here are the three gifts I will be sending to the recipients of my Pay it Forward.
I made some handmade fabric from wool, metallic fibers, pieces of foil, painted and blasted tyvek and cool Australian yarns I had laying around by needle punching them onto a piece of woold. Then, I layered on a piece of organza over the top of the whole thing, and free motion embroidered the front with metallic thread. After that I burned through the organza with a heat gun, affixed some Swavroski crystals and silk ribbons to the front and novelty yarns to the top and covered the back with a hand painted piece of cotton duck cloth that is painted with metallic Lumiere paints. They are so fun to make and come out different every time! I hope their recipients enjoy them!
