river 1

i made this sample for a community installation workshop i taught in queensland, called river

this first step was to stitch white-on-white on shaped pieces of cotton wadding using scraps of lace, torn fabric, buttons, embroidery and (in my case at least) crochet –

the next step was to dye it in 3 different colours using the microwave –

i chose blue, purple and green for my sample
