So here are the pictures of all the ones I sent.
|Free motion sewing on soluble fabric, using some sari silk ribbons and yarns. Dyed silk background.|
|Based on fossil idea. Silk roving, chiffon, silk, scrim. Some hand sewing.|
|Silk hankies, free motion sewing, silhouette done with black fabric, free motion sewing to attach.|
A couple were sent to New Zealand, so I tried to make them either the Melbourne skyline or based on central Australia.
It was quite good fun to make them. They are quite small, 10x15cm (postcard size). It was a bit of a challenge to make them fit the smaller format in some cases.
But it was a great opportunity to play with ideas and techniques.
I have received most of mine now and am feeling inspired to try some new techniques or to revive some old ones.
It has been quite a challenge to do so many but it has also been very exciting to receive them all in the mail.
