Pockets for my apron..work in progress...
Continuing with my apron I have been concentrating on making the pockets for the front. I have used some old jeans as the background and used some of the photos I have taken recently transferred onto fabric after being altered in Picasa. Can you guess which ones were of the jellyfish? I really like these photos of the thistles and forest from last weekends trip to Delamere forest. I found some natural dyed threads which I had forgot about so have used couching to show the threads off. I didnt want to have neat stitching but rather used the threads as another layer of texture.
The main pocket features one of my paintings that I blogged about in 2008..where does the time go..which is called "and down came a blackbird and pecked off her nose..." all layered on fabrics with free motion crazy stitching. I havent finished this apron yet as I want it to be a really layered arty piece..watch this space for the finished result....have a nice weekend everyone
