For most of my projects I usually stick to hand-dyed fabrics that either myself or another artist has done. But for this project I made a happy exception. It’s not everyday that I have a friend come out with her own fabric and thread lines. Then there’s the fact that Lynn and I like similar colors and designs, so what’s not to like?
But I can never leave fabric untouched by paint or pen. Nope, not possible. So these three lovely pieces got printed and drawn on. And in between I turned them into hexi shapes. I had never made a hexi before this and let me say that they are pretty darn fun. And then there’s lots of stitching. The thread is part of Lynn’s INKED threads. The yellow, printed State Fair piece in the middle is from my own stash.
So I can honestly say that the INKED product lines can hold up to a fair amount of surface designing. This piece is still in progress and I will share the finished piece with you next month.
