Today we welcomed Alison Moger to lead us through a workshop to create pictures with scraps of fabric and machine stitch. And inspiration from seeing Alison’s work inspired those attending to produce some wonderful pieces of work which are showcased below….
A very enjoyable day which produced pieces of work to be proud of – well done everyone!
Wednesday 17 June was the day that a little band of enthusiasts got together to create book covers. And… there was no end of creativity.
Some had planned in advance and came ready to go. Hence Chris motored on and by the end of the afternoon had nearly finished!
Liz had thought through her idea which was a seascape. She had a lovely blue background fabric that suggested waves, and this was cleverly enhanced with a rainbow voile.
Keris used a piece of fabric that she had previously foiled laid over a beautiful purple felt and overlaid with a laser cut piece of fabric and voile. She then started to embelish it with tiny seed beads.
Corinne used a piece of hand dyed fabric, overlaid it with a laser cut piece of fabric and some die cut shapes. After overlaying with voile she started to hand stitch into it.
Hillary used a piece or cotton fabric print, added sequins and hand cut fabric letters. She then had a go at free machine embroidery and by the end f the day her two little books were nearly complete. There are going to be some very happy grand children!
Fiona abandoned her original idea and after rummaging through all the scraps created this lovely cover. And,she incorporated a piece of block printed fabric she made at a recent Dyeing to Paint session.
Bridget was engrossed in making a landscape and by lunchtime was well on the way to completing a lovely cover. She also took lots of bits with her after being inspired with the scraps available.
And whilst keeping an eye on what was going on Monica and Hilary were busy creating in their own way.
Monica started a book cover….
And, Hilary made a dream catcher – testing out one of the proposed activities for the forthcoming Crafternoon Tea
And finally, Keris has a new little grand child and showed us a beautiful baby bag she had made
It just shows there is no end of talent in the group!
