My next Super Sample for the Stitched Textiles course was shadow appliqué. Inspiration for this piece comes from a photo I had taken of a panel on a staircase somewhere in France. The background is white cotton and the appliqué shape was bondawebbed onto coloured cotton, cut out and pressed onto the white background. I outlined the appliqué with some pink/gold metallic fabric paint. I overlaid the whole piece with white voile and stitched around the edges in gold thread.
The piece I'm working on now is Reverse Appliqué. Here is the Work In Progress
WIP Reverse Applique
I can already see some tricky bits on this piece!!
