module three ch 11

Composite Sheet with Completed Accessory
As you can see in chapter 10 I planned a muff as my third dimensional accessory. My imagine was a modern part with beads, bobbin and hand embroidery and a structrured background of walk wool by machine quilting
At the beginning I looked for my staff of fabrics, cords and buttons which I could choose for my accessory

                                     The shapes for the embroidery parts, which I cut from dyed cotton and silk

 First I cut the front and back for the muff . The outside parts from the wool and the middle parts from silk and sewed the parts for the front and back. Afterwords I quilted the outside wool sections and the marked piece in the middle for the quiltlines. I appliquéd the dyed fabric pieces with buttonhole stiches and emphasized the edges of the middle part with cords. After quilting the middle piece I mad bobin embroidered spirales and heringbone lines before beginning the beadwork.

After finishing the design work I got a very clear imagine about my acessory. And so I didn‘t got really problems with sewing and stitching exept the lining because I did the mistake first to cut out pieces and then to embroider. Natural the parts became smaller by quilting and the already cutted lining became to
big and I got problems with taking it in.
My finished work is just I imagine it and I am very happy about the conclusion. It looks very special and modern . It is good to wear as a accessory to protect my hands against the cold of winter and I love it as a very nice ornamental jewellery. If I would make this accessory again, I would cut the shapes for quilting and
embroidery bigger as the designed one , so I would have the possibility for corrections.
 It is my goal to get involved in a design process more playful and first of all don’t take account the thoughts about  the technical implementation
I have noticed that I'm early developing concrete ideas about   my work and there for I tie  myself very early. Then I am  no longer open to variations that might arise from trying
