ATC and tiling

December 25, 2014 at 1:56 pm 2 comments

My November ATCs for the EGV swap have been received so here is the process I followed. The theme was music so I did an image search for soundwaves and came up with several stimulus photos. I had fabric from a resist dyeing challenge which had great patterning.

The fabric was ironed onto pelmet vilene and then FME with three different metallic threads to form the soundwaves

ATC 3Next step was hand stitch, using a lovely hand dyed perle and space dyed silk perle. The stitch is Sharon Boggon’s TAST Beaded barbed stitch.

ATC 5

To complete I added ‘speakers’ using buttons and a buttonhole stitch covered washer.

ATC 1

The backing was formatted in text box on a word doc and printed onto canvas.
