Module two ch8

chapter eight
The works for this chapter was a fun gimmick with fabric manipulation for emphasizing seams.

This object of manipulated fabric consists of eight consecutive sewn triangles. For this I used some of my monoprints fabric. The triangles were sewn together at the base and then wrapped each with a toothpick and
hand stitches together.The visible seams I frayed as best I could managed .I think the object is original and it might me backed with velcro as a top of a bag.The comment by my husband: "It looks like an accident
with your sewing machine…"

his part I've worked with a ruffler. I bought this just recently, when I saw the demonstration with this foot. Here I remembered a skirt I sewed at the age of twelve under the guidance of my mother. It was a super full skirt. My mother had no desire to gather this width by hand and bought a ruffler for her sewing machine At those days it was already so fun for me to sew ruches. As I said when I saw this show, I had to have this part!.

Actually this ruch should make puffs. But the edge at the upper end of the fabric strip was not wide enough sewn. The width of the fabric was not enough. I therefore formed arches of the ruchs and fixed at regular intervals with french knots on the seam

Next, we should work ribbons, cords and tuggle from strips of fabric. This in view of the first assessment to consume some of these pieces with it. Actually I'm not a big fan of cords and tassels. Without this course task I would not have made this work. The piece in the middle was worked with water soluble vlies

My toggles exist of felted stripes fused with organza painted with transfer dyed. My mixed black coloured changed by the heat and became purple. It does‘nt matter. It is a nice change after always black and white and grey.
