new pockets – the process

i usually forget to take photos of my work until i’m finished

today i actually remembered to photograph one of my new pockets while i was making it

pocket 3 again uses my own plant dyed and rusted fabrics, including a lacy bed jacket which I’ve cut up

here it is with the background collage loosely pinned in place

next, i stitched and trimmed the background section, adding a torn strip and lace fragment

the last photo shows the finished background (note the extra piece of collage)

after that comes the fun bit – hand embroidery and embellishment

next post:  finished pockets 2 and 3
