Module VI chapter seven



Chapter seven 
  
 USE OF DISSOLVABLE FABRICS

 
picture 1

  First of all I used the water soluble vlies Avalon. But I was not happy about the result, because the water-soluble fabric tore after a few embroidery stitches. The tension, however, had held because the fleece was clamped into a hoop.

Beautiful work for chapters 5,6 and 7 Maren! I love how you have interpreted your drawings in stitching. You are so imaginative. I had a good laugh at your story of your husband's jeans! What an interesting and ingenious solution!
