BIRD JOURNAL

This one features hand dyed fabric in a denim blue colour, some silver painted fabric for the lining, charms, beads and couching.   The raven and feathers are from Urban Threads.   On the cover they were stitched on to silver lame, cut out and then appliqued in to position.   I fiddled with the raven in Embird and put him together as one piece.   In reality he is meant to have wings that are articulated...I think that is the correct word.....anyway, put the wings in to position, masked them and then removed the bits not needed.    The feathers inside the cover are just a straight embroidery design.    I love the silver fabric once quilted.



Wings stitched out on to lame - they are so easy to cut out when stitched on this stuff!

Separated and ready to be stitched in to position.






 A few dingle dangles on the spine of the book!

CICADAS AND SUMMER

Here is a bag I put together using my Cicada machine embroidery designs.    

Fabric paint is an absolute boon if you don't have the right colour in stock or you just can't be bothered going through your stash.

After adding cicadas, I quilted the fabric for the bag panels.   I put some of the green fabric paint on to a tray and using a bit of paper towel, lightly rubbed the paint all over the black fabric.   Makes the quilting really pop.   Lots of leaves for camouflage and a few gum blossoms for pizzazz!   A bright green lining was just right.
