It is beautiful Thank you for the info
This is beautiful. I do something similar. I use a layer of kitchen wrap and add paint. Another layer of wrap and thread scraps and yarn. Another layer wrap and glitter and crayon. Place newspaper on top and iron. The pieces can be cut into any shape and sewn onto fabric backing. I made a beautiful jacket in college. Great work Sand.
This is funky and odd! I can't wait to see what's done with it. ;-)
I have done this and can really come up with. unusual fabric. This is beautiful. . A flower for you.
I used this technique to save some dog hair my daughter wanted to keep, used similar coloured thread to the hair which was black and white. Then she framed it with a picture of the dog. Everyone admires it.
Love yours too.
This is a great way to use those left over threads when embroiderying, I have been collecting mine for about 5 years now, they all add up and ONE DAY I to plan on using them in the same way... Yes I have a pattern also somewhere here. Look forward to seeing the quilt one day also.
Flowers for all of you, and thank you for your nice comments. You got to try, it is fun. You could make a smaller piece directly on a scarf or something, that looks nice too. And then you dont need the tulle.
Nice work. Glad to see someone has got around to doing this. I have almost a box full of thread ends. One day I'll get there. Flower for you.
I think I save my threadend too for a project. Good idea. *4U
This looks really interesting. Like to see it in the finished quilt. Flower for you.
Nice a* $U for your ingenuity
Very nice, I also have been saving my thread snips. Have a pattern for making turkey coaster and the tail feathers are done in thread snips !! Somehow!! Must dig it up and try sometime with next 50 years or so. Flower for you inspiration.
The same thought occurred to me tmbache I have the same pattern somewhere. Post when you get it made & I'll try to find mine also.
sand, I can't wait to see the finished projet - this is lovely but I know when it is done - it will be special. *4U
Thank you for sharing this. I have started to save my threads when I got my lovely shiny rayons. I have an embroidery design (somewhere, ooops) that uses such technique. Can hardly wait to try it out. *4U
excuse me, what is "TOVE" mean?
It is the name of my youngest daughter. She loves yellow, butterflies and all pretty things. And she is going to have this on a yellow one-colour quilt.
I have seen this done, and thought it was very neat - sure have not tired it. I had a woman from a sewing guild that asked us to keep all of our thread ends, and pieces for her, and she was doing this.
Interesting idea! I've never seen something like this! Thanks for sharing!
