The assignment this week was to doodle on paper and transfer the design(s) to tissue paper. Then we pinned the tissue paper to fabric and embroidered the design. When you all done stitching, you rip away the paper and Volia!
I started with two different doodles. The first one I did with marker and the second with india ink.
I took elements from both and traced them onto the tissue paper.
The designs had a dog and bunny look to them and I smiled when I saw this piece of fabric I had that has dogs and bunnies all over it. ~ I had to use it as the canvas.
The design kind of looked like a mat to me so I sewed in one of my recent doodle paintings. I finished the edges with the quilt binding I used in my journal class and backed it with prequilted fabric.
I love how it turned out and here it is hanging in my office.
Here is Melanie's wonderful design! She stitched hers on a block of wool and used a blanket stitch around to finish it.
I cannot wait to see what we do in week 2!
