moving out of my comfort zone

13 Jul

It’s time to be brave and push beyond the joys of sewing. I’ve decided to have a go at making some cards and above is my first attempt. I wanted to still use fabric (I’m not completely running away from what I love) and machine-sew patches onto a card, and then spray paint the card/fabric using a russian doll stencil. I have to say it’s lots of fun making something that has such an instant effect – quilting is magical and wonderful and awesome, but it also takes a good long while to do!

Teaching is still eating into my life hence the shortage of recent posts, but soon, soon, you won’t be able to escape muahahahaha!
