|Willa D. was working on these pages for her Stash book. Great use of textures!|
Here are the results of the Play-with-Your-Fabric-Stash Cloth Book workshop that I was preparing for in this post.
First, we quickly put together some fabric swatches so that students could learn a simple binding technique.
|Peggy G. sewing the binding on her sampler book.|
|Peggy played with inserting some smaller swatches in her sampler book.|
|Another page in Peggy's book.|
|Jodie F's bound sampler book.|
|Peggy G. cutting away to reveal layers hiding below.|
|The backside of the same piece by Peggy G. Cutting can be done from this side as well.|
|Jodie F. using a reverse applique technique on her hand printed fabric. She was trying out possible fabrics to slip beneath.|
|Ann Z. used one of her hand painted and printed fabrics. Cutting away to reveal some hand-dyed cheesecloth.|
|Ann Z.: Detail showing the addition of hand stitching to the cut-away areas.|
|Buffy K. did some reverse applique on this African print.|
|Lots of texture layers on top of Willa D's page!|
|Love how Willa sandwiched lace under this Japanese silk!|
We also played with some Trapunto techniques for stuffing some sections of some pages.
|Tally T. tried a number of techniques on this piece...including Trapunto stuffing.|
|Judy G. working on her cover design. She used reverse applique to "reveal" the VOTE button. Judy brought in an eclectic collection of "political" fabrics.|
|Judy G.: Finished front cover.|
|Judy G.: Inside front cover. I think she needs a word bubble...wouldn't YOU like to know what President Obama is thinking right about now?!|
