January Back to Creativity

 My TAST Owl with swirly cable chain stitches.  Haven't added this week's new stitch yet which is the Interlaced Cable Chain.  I hadn't heard of this stitch before so it will be fun to tackle.
 More resist dyeing on a wet felted piece which has now become a book cover.  Stitching on felt is wonderful!
 This piece became the back cover.
A friend & I recently played with soluble stabilizer.  Here I laid out bits of  thread,
 covered it with another piece of soluble
 and stitched around and all over to make sure that all the threads were joined.
I briefly rinsed it under warm water and shaped it over this glass to dry. Will post a picture of how it turned out next time:)

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you heaps of joy this day,
Jeannette

  2. I've had some of that stabilizer in my stash for ages (years, actually) and have yet to play with it. One of *those* things that are on my to-do list that never seems to get to-done! Haven't tried wet felting either. So much to try, so little time!!

  9. I love seeng your TAST stitches and what you create with them. Owls are very wise and they honor your stitches very well. Love the felted book cover. Ahhh...Solvy is exciting. I have never used it but my husband bought me a custom pricey scarf made just this way with threads, yarns and bits of flimsy fabric scraps all sewn randomly complete with holes. I love my Solvy Scarf. 2016 will be an amazing year dear...

  10. You have some great techniques to show us. Your felted fabric is lovely and makes a nice book cover. I find the soluble fabric interesting, I have seen this before but never tried it, the things that you can create are brilliant.
