Week 5 Samples for Embellisher workshop

Here are some of my samples from the week 5 class on the embellisher with Dale at the Thread Studio
The first one is wool rovings wound in a spiral and embellished then I added some fancy threads plus a chiffon scarf and embellished the lot--then I zapped it with the heat gun creating great texture.



This is the reverse side and it is nearly as nice as the front.






This sample is a serviette on foiled felt and strips of different coloured chiffon scarf--embellished and then zapped--yummy




This one is felt-hand dyed Tissutex--silk rods--wool threads and a chiffon scarf--embellished and then zapped.
I think this will become a needlecase.




Another piece of Tissuetex with a chiffon scarf --embellished and zapped-- double yummy.
Tissuetex is a paper that thinks it is fabric- very strong and takes dyes beautifully can be stitched on and can be purchased at The Thread Studio.





This week it will be week 6---the last one and I must say that I will miss it when it is all over.
I have learned to experiment with fibres and papers and fabric and that most things can be embellished(as long as they don't break the needles that is)

This Tissuetex sounds facinating. Yet another thing to buy:) I can see how much you are learning in Dale's class. Beautiful work.

Wow, Doreen, you certainly have got a lot out of this course, fantastic samples and i can't imagine how you will make needle lace out of one of them.
