burning down the fabric!




I have had a lot of positive comments about the background for my Twitter page so thought I would get the heat tool out again and play around with some chiffon etc. I have picked up various old sarongs, old see through blouses at charity stores and now have a big box of fabric ready to melt and burn!! I am going to try machine embroidery on these samples and perhaps cover some notebooks with them but wanted to show you how I have made them rather than just show the finished projects. The quilting arts site has some really good ebooks to download (look a the column to the right hand side after signing in) with ideas for small quilt projects and machine embroidery tips so they are worth checking out. Off to make some lunch and then sew these on my machine
