Module one ch7

The task for chapter 7 was using fabrics to represent the layers in the previous designs and to incorporate embroidery. The samples were assembled using the cut-work method, various embroidery
threads and a variety of stitch designs. I took my collected fabrics, and the cutting newspaper shapes of the passed chapters..
For my fabric preparation I utilized the cutting newspaper shapes as a template traced them on the back of an embroidery fleece and transfered the outlines with basting stitch to the background of the
collected fabrics.

Three layers of cotton , hand stitched with backstitch. The embroidery
thread is hand dyed in colour gradations orange-read- copper
